(Abies balsamea ‘Phanerolipsis’)
Somewhat more tolerant of wet areas than most firs, but still prefers well drained soils.
Canaan Fir is closely related to the Balsam Fir, with short, soft needles that tend to be medium to dark green on the top, and silverish-blue on the underside.
This tree is gaining considerable popularity as a cut Christmas tree because of its open-growing patterns and strong branches.
Needs full to partial sunlight.
It also makes a rugged landscape tree as it is highly adaptable to many soil conditions. No clay soil.
Matures at 30-40′; 15-30′ spread.
