Araucaria araucana is a large, architectural, evergreen tree with long drooping spidery branches, arranged in regular tiers and densely covered in overlapping, hard, triangular, spirally-arranged, dark-green, spiny-tipped leaves.

An unmistakeably unique tree, the Monkey Puzzle is sadly a familiar site shoe-horned inappropriately into tiny suburban front gardens.

It is a difficult tree to accommodate, slowly growing to large size but also hard to partner because of the distinctive growth and so ideally planted either as a specimen or in isolated groups.

For all that, a well-grown stand of these majestic trees will simply take your breath away.

Delighted with my new Aruacaria, 5ltr pot, it's a stunning young tree with healthy new growth, well packaged with no damage in transit. Now resting in the shade. Thank you Palm Centre.
