Abies firma Japanese momi firRATED FOR ZONES 6-9NO SHIPPING TO CALIFORNIA PLANT IN LAST 3 PHOTOS IS THE ONE BEING OFFEREDIt is a 2 – 3 year old seedling This species of fir is native to central and southern Japan, growing at low to moderate altitudes of 50–1600 meters. It is considered the best if not the ONLY Fir species that will thrive in hot climates. It is one of the few species in this large group of firs and spruces that will actually survive and thrive in the heat and humidity of the southeastern states. QUOTE FROM A GROWER: It is able to withstand southern heat, poor drainage and is resistant to Phytopthora root rot. What more could you ask for. Typically Fir trees are difficult to grow in southern climates but this variety requires little attention. This species of fir is not commonly available as an ornamental tree in the US. However It is very suitable to warm temperate regions with hot humid summers, and the only species in the genus that will grow in such areas. These trees are easily grown in both moist and dry sites, although they are not drought tolerant and will require some summer watering. Growers recommend deep watering at least once or twice a month during dry seasons for faster growth. Under poor conditions this tree will grow slowly but is a medium grower under normal conditions. Up close the needles of this species look like those of the Pacific Yew (Taxus brevifolia) because they are well ordered, flat, short, and wide like a Yew tree. The growth is interesting from a distance as well and appears more like a Cypress than a fir because the branches tend to grow in dense tufts with space in between. A very rare conifer suitable for the southern garden.
