Korean Fir

Abies koreana

  • Strikingly different ornamental tree

Of all the conifers, the Korean Fir tree is perhaps the most enchanting. Extraordinary violet-blue cones nestle upright among the dark green foliage from an early age, at a size of just 60cm (2ft). Developing during the summer months, the cones remain a constant fascination right through to late winter. The needles of Abies koreana are wider, more rounded and softer than our native spruces, giving a full conical appearance as the branches twirl around its central stem. This captivating evergreen makes a stunning specimen tree for providing plenty of year round interest. Although this RHS AGM variety can achieve a significant size with maturity, its slow growth habit ensures that it will remain a manageable size for many years. Supplied as a single stem bareroot 20/30cm. Ultimate height: Up to 10m (32’). Spread: 6m (19’). More info

Euonymus europaeus 'Red Cascade' (Large Plant)

Spindle

A much-discussed plant, as it can sometimes be spotted in hedgerows in the UK, and is recognisable by its colourful seed heads. The wood from the Spindle Bush was originally used for making spindles, hence the name.

Euonymus europaeus 'Red Cascade' is a large, deciduous shrub, which is fairly un-noticeable during the summer, but by autumn the foliage has turned an amazing scarlet. The autumn colour is phenomenal! Then, as if that wasn't enough, the small flowers fade, and winged fruits appear, which are orange and red. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2.5m (8.2').
