The Korean fir, Abies koreana, is a compact, slow-growing conifer with a pyramidal form and masses of closely packed, dark green needles with a silver sheen to the underside. It's ideal for growing as a focal piece in a large garden, or at the centre of a border, surrounded by low-growing plants.
Abies koreana 'Silberlocke' is a particularly ornamental Korean fir. It's leaves are curled upwards, revealing the silver sheen of the underside and giving the tree an overall silvery appearance. The upright cones of younger plants are blue-purple.
The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
