(Abies lasiocarpa)

Subalpine fir is a species of fir native to western Canada and the Rocky Mountains. It occurs in high-altitude elevations often up to the tree line, though it can grow at sea level just as well. A cold-hardy tree, it is able to survive up to zone 5 (-28 C) or more and grows well in full sun and on rocky soils. Trees can grow up to 50m tall and 2m in diameter, but often much smaller in alpine climates.

Germination: Soak in water for 24 hours, then cold stratify for 30 days. Sow in a moist potting mix and allow 2-4 weeks for germination.

Packet contains at least 50 seeds.
