Abies koreana ‘Ice Breaker’ became an overnight sensation after its discovery as a mutation growing on A. koreana ‘Horstmann’s Silberlocke’ and is sought for its stunning contribution to the garden! Two-toned needles recurve up and around their stems to expose a bright white, waxy underside of the green needle. Slow growing with a rounded form when young, it may eventually mature into a broadly pyramidal small tree.

Many perennials and bonsai plants will have a ‘winter look’ that differs from how they look when actively growing. Colder temperatures and short days alter the appearance of these plants as they go thru seasonal changes. Some plants require this reboot to bloom and/or perform at their best during the growing season. Plants may remain semi-dormant until early spring. Rest assured that these cosmetic changes do not adversely affect the health of your plant.
