Abies balsamea ‘Orlok’

This unusual balsam fir broom had elongated finger-like branches that reminded Mike of the old-time character “Count Orlok” from the days of silent motion pictures…This broom was discovered at sunset, shortly after the discovery of another broom, Abies balsamea ‘Creme de Menthe’! The scions of Abies balsamea ‘Orlok’ grafted well but the new cultivars have not yet taken on the growth pattern of the parent broom…we are keeping our “fingers” crossed!!!
