Stiff, needlelike, sharp-pointed leaves are 1 1/2–2 1/2 in.long, green above and whitish beneath. Its brown, 1–2-in. cones are interesting but not profuse. Among palest of needled evergreens in spring and summer, China fir turns red-bronze in cold winters. –Glauca–, with striking gray-blue foliage, is more widely grown and hardier than the species. The dwarf –Little Leo– slowly forms a flattened mound of bright green foliage that turns bronze to purple in winter.
