Araucaria genus (Monkey puzzle tree). This is a genus with 19 species of large evergreen conifers with leathery foliage. The leaves are spirally arranged and usually triangular. They will produce seeds which are exposed on the scales of fruits. As with most conifers, they will produce woody fruits called cones and needle-like leaves.
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.
Grown mainly as architectural trees, for their habit and foliage. Some species are cultivated for their timber or for their edible nuts.
