Araucaria columnaris

Araucaria columnaris

Cook Pine.
Native to New Caledonia. Very similar too and often confused with Norfolk Island Pine when young. The habit is narrower and less feathery. Far more suitable in its early years for a town seaside garden. Nearly always leans slightly one way. The habit is narrower because the older branches are lost and new epicormic ones develop on the stem and replace them (this occurs in later life). In its native habitat Araucaria columnaris shows maximum growth and abundance at the edge of the sea, forming dense populations on cliffs exposed to the prevailing winds. Can reach 60 metres in natural habit. 4.5 metres high x 2.5 wide in 10 yrs growing in our nursery/garden.
