Subalpine Fir 'Compacta' - Hardy plant

Abies lasiocarpa 'Compacta'
A compact growing conifer with striking blue-gray needles!
The subalpine fir ‘Compacta’ (Abies lasiocarpa) is a dwarf fir tree and boasts enchanting blue-grey needles. This dwarf conifer is a true miniature: it only grows to be 1 metre, after ten years. Plant this subalpine fir in a sunny spot in your garden. This dwarf conifer has a wide conical shape, so it needs plenty of room. If the subalpine fir ‘Compacta’ is really thriving in your garden, it will begin producing gorgeous purple pine cones after some time.

Seasonal effects

The appearance of a hedge changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

What do I need?

  • A bucket of water
  • Trowel
  • Watering can or garden hose

Make sure that the root ball of the Abies lasiocarpa is nice and moist. Place the dwarf conifer (without its plastic pot) in a bucket of water for 15 minutes prior to planting. Create a spacious hole for planting, till the soil well and mix the peat throughout. Place the root ball of the subalpine fir in the planting hole. The top side of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole with the blended soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. The subalpine fir thrives in well-drained soil, but is less successful in clay. Place this dwarf conifer in a location with full sun.


What do I need?

    A garden hose or watering can
    Pruning shears
    Cow manure pellets

In general, conifers do well during dry periods, but during the first year after planting, the soil around the roots cannot be allowed to dry out. Once the subalpine fir has settled into its location, the plant is very easy to maintain. Pruning is not necessarily required, because this dwarf conifer keeps its beautiful shape all by itself. However, shoots may appear outside of the cone structure, which can be trimmed after the summer.

Sprinkle cow manure pellets around the plant several times a year and water immediately.
