Discover the beauty of the Abies firma (Japanese Fir, Momi Fir). This stunning tree is native to central and southern Japan, where it can grow up to 50 meters tall with a broad conical crown of straight branches. Its light to dark green needles and yellowish-green cones make it a handsome addition to any garden. Despite being heat tolerant, it is not commonly used as an ornamental tree, making it a unique addition to warm temperate regions with hot, humid summers such as the southeastern United States.
