Australian Red Cedar
Spectacularly fast-growing and statuesque, this rare Australian native is an exceptional deciduous tree with a long history. Australia’s early settlers called it ‘Red Gold’ as the beautiful dark red timber is termite resistant and was used to make everything from furniture to railway carriages to coffins. Fast growth rate.
Plant in full sun or part shade, in very well-drained, fertile soil with a deep profile. A cover of leaf litter is preferred to recreate its natural habitat.
