Abies balsamea 'Piccolo'

Piccolo Dwarf Balsam Fir.  Soft to the touch and easy on the eyes.  New foliage is bright yellow-green, darkening to rich green with age.  Tiny uniform needles radiate from short branches, like an evergreen Bristle Block shrub.  Has a nice globe shape by nature.  Easy to use in fairy gardens, little landscapes, troughs, and railroad gardens.  Pretty when dressed with a string of miniatur lights for the holidays.  Prefers full sun and moist, well-drained soil.  Cold hardy to zone 3, with winter wind protection.  Plants are growing in 3.5"h x 4"diameter pots.
