Abies koreana 'Kohout's Ice Breaker' is a slow-growing, dwarf, compact, dense, rounded, evergreen shrub, eventually growing into a small, pyramidal tree, with short, stubby, radial branches and strongly curled, glossy, dark green needles, with silvery undersides, creating beautiful shimmering, silvery-blue effect. Abies koreana 'Kohout's Ice Breaker' prefers growing in humus-rich, slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils, in full sun. It doesn’t like too dry or waterlogged soils. It can withstand frost and wind, but needs to be sheltered from harsh winds. Generally, disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require any pruning. More resistant to heat and humidity than most firs but still grows best in cooler climates. Abies koreana 'Kohout's Ice Breaker' is an easy to grow and easy to care for wonderful-looking shrub. It’s great for patios and perfect for small rock and gravel, informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Excellent for beds and borders and suitable for growing in pots and containers.

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).
