Kohout’s Icebreaker Korean Fir is a unique and special dwarf evergreen, that grows into a dome-shape plant that will be 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide in about 10 years. The dense branches curve inwards, and so do the short needles, so that it is the silvery backs of them that we see. This gives the plant an incredibly intense silver look, more brilliant and sparking than any other evergreen. Grow it as a specimen in a small bed, or among other dwarf evergreens. Grow it along terrace walls, or use it in pots, planters and window boxes for year-round effect. In time it will become a remarkable specimen plant, and a real garden-party icebreaker.

  • Spectacular rich silver needles all year round
  • A rounded plant with a dome-like form
  • Beautiful and unique garden specimen
  • Winner of multiple garden awards
  • Easily grown, even in colder zones

Full sun or some partial shade are both fine for Kohout’s Icebreaker Korean Fir, and it will grow even in zone 4, with cold winter temperatures and snow. It does not grow so well in hot zones. Plant it in open, well-drained soil, avoiding clay and wet areas. In containers use a well-drained soil mix suitable for trees. This tree is normally free of pests or diseases, and it is easy to grow.
