Abies koreana ‘Blauer Eskimo’ (Korean Fir)

This compact conifer (yes we do sell the odd conifer if we like it) can be grafted to make a charming mini standard which is how we usually grow them on the nursery. The prominent winter buds on the grey green foliage give only a centimetre of growth in a year. Conifers are a bit of a marmite plant but they bring incredible evergreen texture and form to a design especially in winter gardens.  They are a must for acid free draining soil. Our garden designers to use them in Japanese designs to compliment and contrast with Acers, Rhododendrons, Pieris and Skimmias.   They are fantastic in pots, creating a bit of live sculpture.

Best in a moist, fertile but well-drained soil in a sunny spot.

This is only meant as a guide. Please remember we're always on hand to give advice about plants and their frost hardiness.

Please remember that these coloured labels are only a rough guide.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
