Abies koreana 'Brilliant' is a cultivar of the Korean fir, a slow-growing evergreen tree native to Korea. 'Brilliant' is a popular cultivar known for its striking foliage and compact size, making it an excellent choice for small gardens and landscapes. The needles of 'Brilliant' are a vibrant shade of green, with a silvery-white underside that gives the tree a unique and eye-catching appearance. The needles are short and arranged in dense, spiral clusters along the branches, giving the tree a full and bushy look. In the spring, 'Brilliant' produces small purple cones that add to its ornamental appeal. One of the standout features of 'Brilliant' is its compact size, growing to only 5-10 feet tall and 3-5 feet wide over many years. This makes it an ideal choice for smaller gardens, rock gardens, and even container gardens. 'Brilliant' is also well-suited for use as a specimen tree or as part of a mixed evergreen planting. In terms of care, 'Brilliant' prefers moist, well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. It is generally low-maintenance once established, but benefits from occasional pruning to maintain its shape and remove any dead or damaged branches. It is also important to water the tree regularly during periods of drought to ensure healthy growth.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
