There are few trees as impressive as a fully grown Bunya Pine! Native to the rainforests of Australia, it is extremely tough and grows well in all states. With its distinctive domed habit, this stately tree suits large gardens where it has space to develop. Masses of tasty edible seeds are produced in gigantic cones weighing up to 7–10kg. Extremely important to the native peoples within its range and considered a sacred tree, at nut harvest time custodians of the trees travelled through surrounding districts inviting attendance at bunya feasts where traditional ceremonies, hunting and corroborees took place. Slow growth rate.
Plant in full sun or part shade, adaptable to soil types but requires good drainage. Frost and drought tolerant once established.
