Abies grandis
   by Sam_Bucus
Abies grandis has, at least here in Holland, a PR-problem. Everyone here knows the Eastern American giants like Redwood and Douglas but hardly anyone knows the Giant Fir which can also reach over 80 meters, which is not a bit less impressive, easy to grow and not picky about conditions. Hail to the Grand Fir! If only my garden was big enough.
