Abies koreana, commonly known as Korean fir, is an evergreen coniferous tree that belongs to the Pinaceae family. Native to the high mountains of South Korea, this tree species is renowned for its beautiful foliage, attractive cone clusters, and graceful habit. It is a popular ornamental tree grown in gardens, parks, and landscapes around the world. Korean fir can grow up to 15-20 meters in height with a narrow pyramidal or conical shape. The bark is grayish-brown and smooth when young, becoming rough and scaly as the tree ages. The needles are 1-3 cm long, glossy dark green on the upper surface, and have two white stripes on the undersides. They are arranged in a spiral pattern around the branches, giving the tree a graceful and delicate appearance. One of the most distinctive features of Korean fir is its stunning cones. They are upright and cylindrical, measuring 7-15 cm in length and 3-4 cm in width. The cones are green when young, but turn a beautiful purple or violet-blue as they mature. They also have unique, purplish bracts that protrude from the cone scales, adding to their aesthetic appeal. Korean fir is a hardy tree that prefers cool and moist conditions. It is best grown in full sun or partial shade in well-drained, acidic soils. It is relatively slow-growing, but can live for several decades with proper care. It is also resistant to most pests and diseases, making it a low-maintenance tree.

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).
