B & B
Slow 1"-6" per year
Abies koreana ‘Horstmann’s Silberlocke’ is a beautiful selection of Korean fir. The needles on the branches curl on the tops toward the stem exposing the white underside of the needles, giving the tree a frosted look. Typical rate of growth in most areas is 4 to 6 inches (10 – 15 cm) a year. Over time, ‘Horstmann’s Silberlocke’ will grow into a small tree in the landscape. The curling needle habit seems to lessen with age and if given optimal growing conditions, but will always make a striking impression in the garden.
