Korean Fir

The needles of this small, pyramidal tree are recurved, displaying the silver-white undersides. This characteristic gives this specimen a gleaming colour and an uncommonly beautiful textural effect. The large distinctive red cones are eye catching and remain on the tree for a long time. Abies koreana 'Silberlocke' was formerly listed as 'Horstmann's Silberlocke'.
