Abies koreana 'Oberon' - dwarf Korean fir

Oberon is a cushion-like, dwarf variety of Korean fir. It grows slowly into a low, mounding shrub that is only about 30-40 cm tall and 40-60 cm wide in 15 years. Its evergreen needles are short, glossy, deep green with silvery underneath, and grow densely 360° around the branches. Oberon Korean fir does not loose needles even on older branches unless cultivated in unsuitable conditions.

Thanks to limited size it is ideal for small gardens, front yards, and outdoor containers. It does best in filtered sun or full sun planted in equally moist soil that does not dry out. For best results grow it in slightly acidic or neutral, well-drained, not compacted soil. Fully hardy to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5).
