This grower is sure of this plant identification.
Many more rare/choice conifers and broad leaves, send message for full list. Prices are ex vat, ex nursery, 50% surcharge ex vat for orders under £250 ex vat. I currently have many broadleaves(large and small) to dispose of at little more than cost.
Monkey puzzle tree, Chile pine
Araucaria araucana (Monkey puzzle tree). This species has spreading branches with pointed dark green leaves. The hardiest of all the Araucarias, it will grow slowly when young and will reach a height of 20m. The national tree of Chile, it can live to over a 1000 years old. This tree is often called a 'living fossil' as it first emerged as a species in the Mesozoic era.
Watch out for the thorns. It will prefer a moist, well drained soil but will tolerate drought once established.
If you are growing it for its seeds, it doesn't produce them until it is between 30 and 40 years old.
Specimen, ornamental, architectural. Year-round interest.
