  • Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of Growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A distinctive, evergreen, coniferous tree with whorls of branches and pointed, lustrous, bright green leaves maturing to dark green. The monkey puzzle tree is best planted as a focal point on a lawn or in a small group since it doesnt look good among other hardy trees. Once established it will grow to a height of 25m or more and produce large cones, so is better suited for a large garden.

  • Garden care: No pruning is needed. Keep well watered in its first year of growth.
