Ev­er­greens

Sep­a­rate the firs from the pines with this guide to com­mon live conifers.

-

Vir­ginia Pine

Pop­u­lar in the South, their branches are dense yet eas­ily trimmable. Scotch Pine

Min­i­mal shed­ding and high wa­ter re­ten­tion make these a low-main­te­nance choice. Blue Spruce

Its blue hue of­fers a tonal twist on the usual scheme.

Sil­ver Tip

Their open growth pat­tern of­fers more space to show off dec­o­ra­tions.

Dou­glas Fir

These all-stars’s full shape fills larger spa­ces eas­ily.

Bal­sam Fir

The most fra­grant of all, these dry out eas­ily, so be sure to watch your wa­ter­ing.

Fraser Fir

Sturdy branches, min­i­mal shed­ding, and a strong scent make them a triple threat.
