Abies koreana, KOREAN FIR, Z 5,6, Cones
Mature height - 18'x9', Growth - Med., Light - S-Psh, Soil - Med., Origin - Korea
Firs in general are relatively finicky, preferring a temperate pollution free climate. The lure of attractive purple cones born even on young trees; and an attractive white underside to the needled foliage, make this one worth the try. It seems to do alright through our sometimes hot and humid summers.
Calocedrus decurrens, INCENSE CEDAR, , 5,6,7, DR, Frag
Mature height - 40'X8', Growth - Med., Light - S-Psh, Soil - Med., Origin - Western US
Saw this in winter at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. Foliage was green, and bark appealing cinnamon red. Not seen very often but we think it is promising and should be used more often. It does well in heat of south. A narrow handsome specimen, with fragrant foliage.
Metasequoia glyptostroboides, DAWN REDWOOD, , 5,6,7,8, history
Mature height - 80'x20', Growth - Fast, Light - S, Soil - Med-Wet, Origin - China
Best sited in moist, deep well drained soil but will take wet better than some. Avoid frost hollows as fast growth, (50' in 20yrs) suffers. This tree is one of those dinosaur nudgers, fascinating to think it has been in existence for 100 million years. Soft needles that are deciduous and will give golden fall color.
Picea omorika, SERBIAN SPRUCE, , 4,5,6,7, DR,Shape
Mature height - 50'x20', Growth - Med., Light - S-Psh, Soil - Med., Origin - Europe
Close pyramidal nature, less expansive than other spruces. Needles green on top have attractive white underside.
Taxodium distichum, SWAMP/BALD CYPRESS ,4, 5,6,7,8,9,
Mature height - 60'x20', Growth - Fast, Light - S, Soil - Med-Wet, Origin - Introduced to US in 1640, found Delaware to Florida.
Very adaptable to conditions. In wild seen in permanent swamps but grows well in sandy soils where there is moisture. Has been used as a street tree owing to little leaf litter from this deciduous conifer. Soft green spring needles turn darker in summer and golden russett in Fall color.
