The Majestic China Fir


Author(s):
Abstract:
Loewer describes the characteristics of the China fir and its history. The first was first collected in 1701 by Dr. James Cunningham, an English surgeon and avid plant collector, but it would be another hundred years before it was brought to England. It is an unusual and rare conifer in the North Carolina mountains, but will survive and flourish.
