Product information "Korean Fir"

Firs (Abies) should actually be planted in gardens with caution. All too soon they will become much too large – and after 10 to 20 years, they then endanger the neighbouring property and must be lifted out from the garden by a special firefighter unit or by specialised lumberjack troops. Abies koreana, the Korean fir, is somewhat of an exception. It can, however, also reach a height of three to five metres in one generation, but with its 10-15 cm of new growth per year, it grows quite slow. You will thus not be surprised by its growth in any way, and after 10 to 20 years, you can calmly consider whether the tree still fits in your garden. Or even better: Leave this decision up to the next generation ;-)

The Korean fir originates – as the name suggests – from the Korean mountains and there the altitude is about 1000 m above sea level. In our region, this tree is very hardy (to -30 degrees Celsius).  It is very rarely susceptible to frost damage in the spring if there are freezing temperatures again after the first new shoots sprout. It recovers very quickly.

In contrast to almost all other firs, the Korean fir forms pinecones very early, already when the tree is one metre tall. The pinecones stand proudly upright on the branches and their violet-purple to sometimes red/brown/silvery colour is truly beautiful. Equally striking is the silvery shine of the base of the almost non-prickly needles. Looking at the needles closer, there are two, white-silvery stripes that are separated by a green line on the underside of the needles. The branches of the Korean fir protrude almost horizontally; they are beautifully arranged in tiers and add to the scenic overall picture. The Korean fir is undemanding; it requires a sunny to partially shady location and prefers light, but humus-rich soils.

Suitable as a potted Christmas tree

Quite often you can see larger Korean firs in home gardens that are decked out for the Christmas season. The same thing can of course be done with Korean firs planted in pots. Due to the slow growth you can use a potted Korean fir as a Christmas tree for two to three years and then it must be planted or re-potted into a much bigger pot. Due to the side branches that are arranged in horizontal tiers, the Korean fir can also be impressively decorated for Christmas.
