Abies Nobilis (Blue Spruce)
Abies Nobilis is a very seasonal Christmas foliage and is only available in November and Dececember. Blue Spruce is never seen on the wholesale flower markets in other months. Traditionally Blue Spruce is used for making Xmas flower arrangements, Spruce Rings, Xmas Garlands and decorating shop windows etc.
Blue Spruce, (Abies Nobilis), is wholesaled in three different grades:
- White Band - Deep blue in colour & the most expensive
- Lilac Band - Somewhere in between blue and green - the mid priced option
- Red Band - Bright green in colour & the cheapest of the three options
The grades are visible by the stems being tied with a white, lilac or red elastic band. All three options of Spuce are wholesaled in weighted bunches of 5Kg.
