A staggeringly beautiful tree when mature, this conifer's most notable characteristic has to be its violet / purple....almost blue cones. The cones reach a size of 2"-3" long, and 1" wide, and begin to appear once the trees reach an average size of 3 to 5 feet tall. Korean Fir is slow to moderate in growth rate, and has a very compact, dense habit. Has shown to be more heat tolerant than many Fir species. Needles are a nice bright green with a bright white underside - truly striking no matter how you look at it. Full sun to part shade - well drained soil with some organic content for best results. This tree is one to be treasured by conifer collectors - one of the hardest to come by in the nursery trade.
