Fitzroya cupressoides (Patagonian cypress). This evergreen species which has a strong upright single-trunk, producing fibrous reddish bark and rather pendulous branches of small juniper-like oblong leaves, they are arranged in whorls of three. The small globular cones are borne in an abundance, maturing rapidly and shedding their seed from early autumn.
If the conifer produces more than one leader, to maintain the general conical habit remove all but one leader. To restrict the height of the plant, the leader can be cut back.
