Abies amabilis ‘Shooting Star’
Abies amabilis ‘Shooting Star’ is a beautiful Pacific silver fir broom! It was discovered on a mountain hillside densely covered with relatively young 10-15 ft tall Abies amabilis trees. The broom, perched near the top of the tree, shows off silvery undersides and multiple upright “shooting” leaders! The broom measured 30 inches tall, and 18 inches wide! It was extremely difficult to access the broom, while maneuvering a 16 foot pole saw uphill, around heavily branched trees that seemed less than 2 feet apart!… Look out ‘Spreading Star’!… Here comes ‘Shooting Star’!!!!
