White fir is a popular conifer of Czech and Slovak gardens and parks. It is demanded for its glaucous foliage colour. Nurseries take good care to select only the seedlings that have the most attractive colour because this fir occurs naturally in the range of dark green where only the young shoots are light green or turquoise to silvery blue.

Violacea is a selective seedling variety of white fir with long, silvery needles turning pale blue-green when adult. They are soft to touch, borne erect on almost horizontal to slightly ascending branches. The tree shape is conical, quite symmetrical. It grows slowly to medium fast.

White fir will grow in almost any well drained soil, from slightly alkaline to acidic. The soil should be humus-rich and moist when transplanted but once established it can take long periods of drought. Grow it in full sun for best colour or in light shade. Fully hardy to -40°C (USDA zone 3).
