Abies nephrolepis, also known as Manchurian Fir, is a stunning and unique evergreen coniferous tree. Native to northeastern China, North Korea, South Korea, and southeastern Russia, this medium-sized tree can reach a height of 30 meters with a trunk up to 1.2 meters in diameter and a narrow conic to columnar crown. Its bark is grey-brown, smooth on young trees, becoming fissured on old trees. Its flat needle-like leaves, spirally arranged but twisted at the base, lie flattened either side of and forwards across the top of the shoots. This tree also produces green or purplish cones that can reach a length of up to 7cm. Each cone bears two winged seeds, released when the cones disintegrate in the autumn. The Manchurian Fir is closely related to Abies sachalinensis, Abies koreana, Abies veitchii, and Abies sibirica and can act as a hybrid with the latter. At higher elevations, this tree thrives with Juniperus sabina and Pinus pumila. Admire the beauty of the Manchurian Fir in your garden and enjoy its uniqueness and durability.
