This Australian native conifer caused a sensation when it was discoverd in the wilderness of Wollemi National Park in NSW. It is related to the Bunya and Norfolk Island Pine and has a similar pyramid shape when mature. The dark green textured foliage contrasts well with the dark brown bark to form a very distinctive feature plant for the garden. The seed cones are also an attractive feature. This tree can be temperamental in cultivation as it is somewhat susceptible to root rot. It can make a great potted live Christmas tree given good care and a suitable large container.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
