Abies magnifica var. shastensis
Shasta Red Fir

You are bidding for a pack of 10 seeds

This is a very beautiful fir from the Northern Sierra Nevada's into the Southern Cascade range. Closely allied to the Noble Fir (Abies procera), some botanists believe that this is actually a naturally occurring hybrid between the Noble Fir and the Red Fir (Abies magnifica var magnifica). It is true the ranges overlap and the theory could be correct, however it is an undeniably beautiful fir and appears to be 'stable' where it is grown and produces offspring true to type - generally the mark of a valid species/variety.

It is a large tree, with a medium growth rate. The tree can reach extreme heights of 76 metres, but 50 metres is a more likely average with a spread of 15 metres. It is hardy to Zone 6, prefers an acid soil which maintains its moisture levels. It produces quite showy cones when still quite young, these take some time to mature when they release quite large seeds in some numbers. May be grown as a garden specimen or used as material for bonsai culture.
