Introducing the Abies borisii-regis King Boris Fir, a majestic evergreen tree that can grow up to 60 meters tall, with a trunk diameter of up to 1.5 meters. Native to the mountains of the Balkan Peninsula, this species of fir is closely related to the Silver Fir, the Greek Fir, and the Nordmann Fir.

It thrives in mountainous regions with a rainfall of over 1000mm, at elevations of 800-1800m. The scientific name honors Tsar Boris III of Bulgaria, during whose reign it was first discovered and described. With its towering height and handsome foliage, the King Boris Fir is sure to be a centerpiece in any outdoor space.
