Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Grows best in an acidic, well-drained, moist to damp soil. Avoid planting in heavy clay, in areas with poor drainage or those within reach of salt spray. Once established, silver fir can tolerate significant drought.

Additional Notes about Candicans White Fir:

As with most fir, cones are held erect on upper branches and disintegrate without falling.
