The Q&A Archives: Nobles in shade?

Question: Will Noble or Grand Firs grow well under the shadow of giant Maples where they will only get a couple of hours of direct sun?

Answer: Noble Fir (Abies procera) is an evergreen conifer native from northern California to Washington state that grows in full sun and needs good drainage and regular water in a garden setting. Noble Fir grows very slowly to 90 ft. plus, and is the premium Christmas tree. An open, sunny area is best in the garden for a Noble Fir.
