Abies koreana ‘Ice Breaker’ became an overnight sensation after its discovery as a mutation growing on A. koreana ‘Horstmann’s Silberlocke.  It is eagerly sought for its stunning contribution to the garden and its small size. Two-toned needles recurve up and around their stems to expose the  bright white, waxy underside of the green needle. Slow growing with a rounded form when young, it may eventually mature into a broadly pyramidal small tree. This spectacular, colourful dwarf won the distinction of the American Conifer Society‘s 2014 Conifer of the Year.
