Hi David,

The Korean Fir (Abies koreana), Zone 5, is listed in my 1997 Forest Farm
catalog. Address:  Ray and Peg Prag, 990 Tetherow Rd., Williams, OR
97544-9599.  Tel. (541) 846-7269, 9AM to 4PM Pacific Time.

Description..."This fir is highly esteemed for its modest size [compact to
40-60'], its decorative character [short erect lvs show their very whi.
reverse] & its handsome deep purple cones [borne when fairly young]"
(Bean). S-PSh/M

In 1997, a 1 Gal (2-3') plant was listed as $9.00, and a 5 Gal (4-5') plant
was listed as $26.00.

Hope this helps.

Linda in NW Ohio near Toledo/Lake Erie, USDA Zone 5
