DWARF-CONIFERS

Dwarf Less than 1-6" of growth per year. Less than 1-6' of growth in 10-15 years.
Intermediate Less than 6-12" of growth per year. Less than 6-15' of growth in 10-15 years.


ABIES The genus Abies, the true fir, offers beautiful, adaptable garden forms that exhibit exceptional uniformity and regular branching. Valued for a wide range of striking evergreen shapes and sizes that fill many landscape needs, Abies cultivars include broad and narrow upright trees, naturally low, prostrate forms, tiny varieties for use in rock gardens and troughs, and weeping forms that make outstanding focal points. Stiff, pointed needles, some of which recurve to show off silvery undersides, contribute rich colors and tight textures to garden scenes. Upright ornamental cones boast bright colors too. Most Abies prefer rich soil with abundant rainfall and are highly adaptable and easy to maintain when given good drainage. Hardiness varies by species.
koreana 'Cis' Cis Korean Fir. Abies koreana ‘Cis’ has radiating, dark green needles which lie flat on the stems and are highlighted by attractive, small, brown buds at the branch tips. This slow-growing, flattened, spherical plant has a formal, tidy appearance and glistening foliage that draws attention in the garden. Selected in Holland in 1989. Garden Size: 1.5’H x 2’W Dwarf: 1-3″/year Globe Shaped Zone 4
