Abies pinsapo 'Horstmann'

25.00

 This Spanish fir is a magnificient cultivar with stiff, short needles and reddish-purple 'pollen' cones that contrast beautifully with the light blue needles. 'Horstmann' was discovered in Germany as a witch's broom in a specimen of pinsapo 'Glauca' by Gunther Horstmann. It grows slowly at first but gains momentum as it ages adding 6-8" per year. It normally grows into an irregular spreading mound and will eventually produce an upright leader which will allow one to enjoy a stunning horizontal AND upright specimen all at once! Full sun and well drained soil for best appearance. Horstmann is EXTREMELY tolerant of drought. A 3'H x 2'W garden gem can be acheived in 10 years. Zone 6  A Wabi Sabi Favorite.
