Korean Fir

This tiny Korean Fir is an exquisite garden gem, with every compact branch decorated during fall and winter with pearls---really resinous, white buds.  Short, wide, deep green needles, accented with silvery-white undersides add to the plant's year-round ornamental impact. Conifer collectors will love adding this dense, very slow growing jewel to their rock or trough displays, where it will eventually take on a pyramidal form. Use caution in hot areas, where harsh rays can bleach the needles.
