What is Blue Cloak White Fir Tree

With its striking powder-blue needles, the Blue Cloak White Fir stands out from deeper-green evergreens. A dwarf conifer, this fir retains its almost-perfectly pyramidal shape with no or minimal pruning. The Blue Cloak is also prized for its slightly-weeping branches, denseness, and medium-sized needles, differentiating it from similar landscape plants.

You’ll love the Blue Cloak White Fir for planting in rock gardens or as a garden accent because of its small size and eye-catching color. Even more – it retains its vibrancy throughout all four seasons, making it a smart choice for winter gardens that need variety.

At full size, the Blue Cloak White Fir is smaller than most evergreens, with a slow-to-medium growth rate of about eight inches annually. When it does reach its full size, it’s a reliable privacy shield plant – it can live for 80 years or more.

This unique evergreen has eye-catching color, an elegant habit and easy care – don’t miss out on adding this beauty to your landscape.

How to Grow and Care for Blue Cloak White Fir Tree

Blue Cloak White Fir Tree (Abies concolor ‘Blue Cloak’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 4-8 outdoors


Plant your Blue Cloak White Fir in a spot in your yard that gets full sun. Well-drained soil is also ideal. To plant, dig a hole in the ground that is two times as large as the root ball. Place the tree in the loose soil and press the soil down until the tree’s roots are completely covered. Add a layer of mulch to the planting area to insulate against colder temperatures.


Water the ground immediately after you plant your tree, but don’t oversoak. To establish your young tree, you may need water 1 to 4 times each month during the summer. After that, water regularly when the top 3 inches of soil is dry – the Blue Cloak White Fir prefers soil that is evenly moist, but not soggy.


The Blue Cloak White Fir doesn’t need significant pruning to retain its neat, pyramidal shape. If you do see dead or diseased branches, you can prune them down to the trunk in the fall.
