The genus is Pseudotsuga, where 2 of the six species are native in the western United States. One species has a very wide-spread range, and very popular as a Christmas tree. The other species has a very small range where these trees are found.
Douglas-Fir holds a medium color for a long time, and is very fragrant. The short needles vary somewhat from flat sprays to nearly surrounding the twigs. They also can be planted in the landscape. Their growth can vary, but the general rule of "a foot a year" applies here, but with good growing conditions and a steady supply of moisture, they can grow three feet or more a year. These are moderately cold tolerant, like most of the Christmas-tree conifers, plant from Zones 5 to 9 in full sun.
What a magnificent tree! The native range of the Doug is almost the entire western half of the country, into northern Mexico and western Canada, mid-elevation generally, and grows in forests that varies from mixed conifers to pure stands. Valuable too! The Doug-Fir is the leading lumber tree across the west, dense, heavy, and strong, this is used for construction of homes and buildings. And as a fairly fast growing evergreen, Douglas-Fir has been planted en masse` to assure healthy productive forests and products for generations to come.
In the landscape design, you can plant these as a privacy screen, along a border or fenceline, and certainly by itself. They prefer full sun, but can also tolerate some shade.
