Blauer Pfiff is a dwarf variety of Korean fir from Germany, 1979. It has silvery blue or blue-green needles arranged radially around the shoots. It grows slowly, forming a slightly irregular, spreading shrub without any pruning, but we usually select plants for you that have been trained to grow with a central leader which gives the plant the same look as its mother species – Korean fir – dense, pyramidal habit.

Thanks to reduced growth rate it is ideal for small gardens, front yards, and outdoor containers. 15 year-old plant can measure a little over 1m hence its higher price in nurseries. It does best in filtered sun or full sun planted in equally moist soil that does not dry out. For best results grow it in slightly acidic or neutral, well-drained, not compacted soil. Fully hardy to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5).
