Canaan fir also called West Virginia Balsam Fir is a genetic cross of the northern balsam fir from the northern United States and Canada and the Fraser balsam fir from the southeastern United States. The blue-green, flatish needles are a silvery color on the underside of the branches. Its fragrance is sweet and spicy like balsam and Fraser fir. Its soft lacing branches are sturdy enough to support ornaments of many sizes. This variety is grown in Ohio for its tolerance to our heavier clay based soils. Needle retention is very good for this water loving tree.
