Abies normanniana 'Golden Spreader'

Abies normanniana 'Golden Spreader' ()

Common Name



Any good garden soil


Sun or partial shade



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.


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

This plant was added to the database on 28th December, 2009.
