I picked one of these up the other day in Z6a Hartford CT. Not finding much info online. There's a placeholder entry at the conifersociety site, but no info beside size and sun numbers.
From what little I find so far, I'm seeking full sun and expecting moderate growth - likely will still be under 10ft in 10 years. Expecting it to be less conical and symmetric than a stereotypical Christmas tree.
So just trying to plan the right spot, or hear any other experiences or advice. I'm a little nervous wondering why no one seems to plant douglas fir in general around here, but I can't find reference to any pest or other problems, so not sure why. I'd like to put it near a 'Skylands' spruce and am thinking 20-25' separation would be reasonable.
edit: Here's the only pic I can find online: pic Mine's not that yellow yet... on second thought, maybe I won't put it by the Skylands.
