Abies normanniana 'Golden Spreader' ()
 

Common Name


 

Soil

Any good garden soil
 

Aspect

Sun or partial shade
 

Height

2-3ft
 

Action and Timing

This is a fantasic little dwarf spreader once called 'Aurea Nana' and a lovely little thing that develops its colour as winter progresses. Its spreading habit can prove really useful in the garden for front of border, covering a manhole, drain, or as I have it, spreading itself over a large flagstone.
 

Nursery Notes

Grafted plant.
 

Opinion

Superb creeping dwarf fir. Fully hardy. Colours mainly in winter.
