Abies pinsapo glauca, commonly known as the blue Spanish fir, is a stunning evergreen tree that is native to the mountains of southern Spain and northern Morocco. It belongs to the Pinaceae family and is closely related to other firs such as Abies nordmanniana and Abies alba. One of the most striking features of Abies pinsapo glauca is its beautiful blue-gray needles that are arranged spirally around the branches. The needles are relatively short, typically measuring around 2-3 centimeters in length, and have a soft texture. The tree's bark is smooth and grayish-brown in color, with scattered resin blisters. Abies pinsapo glauca is a slow-growing tree, with a mature height of up to 25 meters, and a dense, narrow crown. It prefers well-drained soils and is able to tolerate both dry and humid conditions. It is commonly found in mountainous regions, growing at altitudes of up to 2,000 meters. The blue Spanish fir is highly valued for its ornamental qualities and is often used in landscaping and garden design. It is an excellent choice for large gardens, parks, and open spaces, where its beautiful color and shape can be fully appreciated. Additionally, it is a popular choice for Christmas tree production due to its distinctive appearance and pleasant aroma.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
