Crazy for Abies

For the non-crazy conifer fans, I present to you the species of abies. The common name for these are firs and the two above are some favorites of mine.
The top three photos are of Abies firma 'Gold Hue' which if you live in a warmer environment many botanist feel abies firma will do better in higher humidity areas.
The bottom three photos of are Abies koreana 'Siberlocke'. The curled needles expose the silvery white underside of the needles and is one of the most striking conifers in the world, IMO. If you're a new gardener I would suggest 'Siberlocke' as a must have.
