Also known as Spanish fir, this coniferous, evergreen tree species originates from southern Spain and northern Morocco. It develops a conical crown shape which may become irregular with age. Foliage is glaucous, pale blue-green and banded with white wax on both sides. This is reduced to needle-like structures measuring approximately 1.5–2 cm long. Cones are cylindrical, coloured purple to pink-green as they develop, reaching a length of around 9–18 cm and becoming smooth, with small scales holding winged seeds.
