Ordered this last year and the plant was about 3 inches tall. In one season it has grown to be about 12 inches. Beautiful little tree!
What better way to bring in the holiday spirit to your garden than with beautiful fir trees. Korean Fir trees are ideal choices for those who love fir trees but don't have the room in their garden to accommodate massive evergreen trees. Also known as Abies Koreana, this medium-sized tree can grow anywhere from 20 to 30 feet and features lovely violet-purple cones. Although it takes time for a korean fir tree to reach maturity, they can tolerate warm climates more easily than other Fir species. The conifers really stand out against the tree's bright green needle-like leaves, which also reveal silver white undersides. As the name indicates, this fir variety is native to South Korea where it grows in high altitudes.
Conifer collectors favor the Abies Fir for its abundant cone production. Its elegant appearance makes it a popular ornamental plant for landscaping and holiday decorating. The Korean Fir prefers well-drained and organic-rich soil that is average to slightly acidic. It does not require watering during rainy weather and thrives best in areas that get lots of sunlight. You can expect cones to appear once the korean fir reaches heights of 3 to 5 feet and their color gradually changes from purple to tan as the season progresses. Christmas will definitely be a little livelier and more colorful with an Abies Fir tree in your home.
