Koreana Cone-a-rama

Silver Show is a seedling of Silberlocke

These little cones are on my little Korean Fir that grows in a pot on the patio. It has a total of three, the larger one is about two inches long and will turn purple as they mature. Love the way they stand upright on the branch. The tree itself is only about 2 feet tall and will top out at about 5 to 6 feet which will take about 10-15 years. It was a gift last year for my birthday. 
I love the way the needles curl and show their silver side to all. Kind of like showing off, well the Korean Fir is called the Queen of the Conifers. Hopefully I will plant this somewhere out in the side garden this coming fall or I just might do root trimming and keep it in a pot.

USDA hardiness zone 5 to zone 7
