Queensland Kauri Pine
The fastest-growing evergreen native you will ever grow – as quick as Jack’s beanstalk! Culled for timber in the settler days in northern Queensland, it is now well established as far south as Heronswood in our dry soil. Bereft of side branches on the lower trunk, it takes up little garden space and it’s hard to resist stroking its attractive smooth mottled bark. As ancient as the Wollemi Pine. Very fast growth rate.
Plant in full sun, protect from frost when young and water regularly during establishment.
