Duflon Alpine Fir - Abies lasiocarpa 'Duflon'

Regular price $24.99

Very sweet and very rare. We've only have been able to offer this lil' gem for sale 3 times since we've been in business since 2001, (online since 2004.)

One of the slowest growing firs often coveted by conifer collectors and only available every couple of years. The Duflon Alpine Fir is a charmer! 

Now be warned, this little shrub is tiny and grows ever-so-slowly so the biggest caveat is not to lose it in the miniature garden bed! Plant it in a prominent spot so you'll see it and take care of it by keeping the regular plants and ground covers from over-taking it, and smothering it. Otherwise, it's a good grower that will keep its charm for years and years, wether you are a miniature gardener, a collector or a bonsai artist.
