A large an majestic native conifer growing up to 15m tall and 8m wide in 20 years in the Canberra region. Conical when young, with dark green, broad and prickly needles and rounding out to a roughly oblong shape at maturity.
Protection from heavy frost is needed when young and the tree prefers well drained soil.
Ideal for large blocks and rural properties. Plant at least 10m away from any structures as the large, football-sizes cones are very heavy.
An awesome and iconic specimen tree.
The seeds are edible too!
