A South American native conifer with a look akin to something from the forests of the Triassic period. These very cool trees offer up thick, sturdy, deep green leaves with prominent angled edges and sharp tips. The symmetrical plants often shed lower limbs with age, adding to the Dr. Seuss facade. Though we're not certain if monkeys have figured out how to climb them we're confident the plant stands a chance in warmer regions of New England and adjacent New York. Reports of success on Long Island and southeastern Connecticut are exciting! Though we certainly can't guarantee it, those looking for success will stand the best chance in a protected location in rich, well-drained soil. 20-30'
