Korean Fir

The purple cones were what drew our attention to this marvelous tree.  Native of Korea, it grows well  at high altitudes,with abundant rain and snowfall and humid summers.  The foliage is pretty too. 

Picture taken at Benmore Gardens, Scotland.  You can see a lovely picture here at Aberdeen Gardening.

The cones are purple at maturity. They then disintegrate and winged seeds are released.

Botanical name – Abies Koreana
