Corkbark Fir Abies lasiocarpa ssp arizonica Zone 5
Alpine (also called Subalpine) Fir is a mountain fir of the west coast which grows over a wide area in the western US from New Mexico to Alaska. It can grow to 100-160 feet tall and a trunk of 4 feet but can be found as a small shrub on exposed mountaintops. Needles are short in the range of 1 to 1 1/2" long and are often pointed upward and branches droop downward. The bark is a corky creamy white. It is native to cool, moist climates but has been grown successfully near Chicago with plenty of soil space around the tree for root expansion. It tolerates snow loads well. Trees in the forest can grow to more than 80 feet tall. Firs like an organic soil or organic matter incorporated into the potential root zone. Irrigate them in times of drought. Allow for good drainage or plants will decline. This plant can be used as a substitute for Blue Spruce.
