Cunninghamia lanceolata glauca

Blue Chinese Fir
Propagated from a plant grown in our zone 6A garden (survived -15F one year!) for almost 20 years, this hardy form of Chinese Fir deserves a pot in any conifer collectors garden! Icy blue new foliage, lovely round green cones that ripen to russet brown, and a pyramidal shape with a graceful weep to the branches. Site in a spot protected from strong winter winds here in the colder ranges. Can grow to 30-40' or more, but it a also be stooled regularly to keep a lower horizontal growing plant. Shipping 18-24" plants in 1 gallon pots.
