Haven't had much luck growing this tree. Two if them died. Any tips on growing this plant? I tried it in well drained soil in full sun. Thanks.

He said on the other forum he's in NJ. They should grow well almost anywhere in the state if correctly sited. Here's one at a Longwood. There are even nice looking Abies koreana in the suburbs of DC.

Here is a link that might be useful:

I have a species Korean fir (Abies koreana) and its doing very well. Bought it as a 3-4ft tall B&B about 5 year ago. Today it's about 12ft tall. Very nice tree in great condition, growing in full sun for most of the day, light shade in the late afternoon. Watered it very well the first year or so, added mulch, etc.

The only thing about mine is that it doesn't produce many cones. Have heard that Abies koreana produces those beautiful purple fir cones at a very early age, but this particular tree does not. But the light green top and white underside foliage are reason enough to have one.

Good luck.
