3 years of Abies lasiocarpa 'Compacta'
Filling in for Will, but unfortunately I can only show 3 years of growth instead of 4... (actually it is 2 years of growth but I can still show the image at the time of purchase).
The strong leader with multiple buds shows me that maybe this plant is established by now....?
I really can't find any reason why anyone should discard this plant from his/her garden. Abies lasiocarpa 'Compacta' is a beautiful tree that fits everywhere for years, has an amazing color and can withstand full blazing sun at a dry zone 8.
