A. nordmanniana is an evergreen conifer making a large tree to 30m or more, with narrow conical or columnar crown, with dense, glossy dark green foliage on down-swept branches. Young cones green or reddish, becoming brow. (RHS)
2017.- Honeydew & sooty mould in April-May
2016.- No honeydew or sooty mould this season. Early honeydew falls mid-June.
2015.- Spring: lots of honeydew in the branches, which falls all over the shrubs & herbaceous plants underneath, resulting in their being covered in sooty mould. Started to remove said sooty mould with soapy water, but gave up. Mostly disappeared from end of June.
2013.- Lower branches removed by Rob.
This conifer existed when I bought the property. It must be at least 30 years old.
