We were up in the Mt Hood region with our goal to obtain a piece of Abies procera ‘Mt Hood Summit’ but the weather was not cooperating, with rain and high winds! After several unsuccessful attempts to retrieve some scions, we decided to travel the side roads while waiting for the weather to settle down, and found 2 new brooms! An Abies amabilis ‘Sweet 16’, and this cute Abies procera ‘Anew Blue’! Cheryl was excited because competitive Mike missed it, and she found it! Truly a rarity in more ways than one!
