Abies lasiocarpa

Subalpine Fir

Smallest of the firs, Subalpine Fir is a thin 40 ft. spire that grows near alpine meadows. Dark purple cones at the top of these trees point up and as with all the firs the cone scales fall apart to release the seeds devoured by animals and birds. The foliage is munched by mountain sheep and deer. Fall sow or cold stratify 1 month. Zones 2-6.
