Noble Fir Noble Fir

A somewhat fast growing evergreen native to the northwestern United States, this fir is blue-green in color and thrives in cool, damp climates. Its cones are distinctive: cylindrical, green to olive-brown, bracts longer than the cone scales. A close-up look at the needles of this tree will show white bands on both sides; this gives the Noble Fir its bluish color.
