“Conica” is a semi-dwarf strain of concolor fir that maintains a narrow upright habit similar to Picea “Cupressina” but with the heavier, more substantive needles of a fir.  Very tolerant of heavy snows, it will not tear out. This is an excellent ornamental conifer for small spaces or to add structure to naturalistic designs. Consider this as a more interesting alternative to Thuja for large screening plantings.
