Abies koreana: Bareroot Sapling Korean Fir Trees

Korean Fir trees, Abies koreana, are small, slow growing, evergreen conifers, suitable for most gardens. This compact, quite narrow, cone-shaped tree has dark bark and dark, glossy green needles with light grey undersides. The young cones are a decorative purple colour, turning brown when they mature, and they stand upright on their stems, so you can see them well. These appear on young trees, generally by the time they reach one or two metres, which is unusually early for a conifer.

Korean Fir is not suitable for a clipped hedge, but it makes a great Christmas Tree, and although it is slow growing, it makes an attractive screen if you have the patience.

Delivery season: Korean firs are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.


  • Height: Slow growing to 15m
  • Soil: Moist, acidic. Does not tolerate pollution or chalk.
  • Use: Specimen, screening, large containers
  • Purplish, upright new cones
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Korean Fir Trees

As a mountain tree, it is very hardy indeed, but still likes a lot of sun.

Its favourite soils are deep, fertile, consistently moist but well drained (such as rainy British hills), and on the acidic side. It won't tolerate waterlogged sites or chalk, and it is not a fan of heavy clay or polluted urban conditions. It is happy in a large container.

Did You Know?

This tree was first imported from Korea, where it is called Gusang namu, at the start of the 20th century.
