Queensland Kauri Pine
The fastest-growing evergreen native you will ever grow – as quick as Jack’s beanstalk! Dating back to the Jurassic age, it was highly prized and culled for timber in early settler days in northern Queensland. Despite its tropical origins, it is now well established as far south as Heronswood in our dry soil. Unlike typical conifers, this native pine has glossy wide leaves. It produces large green cones as big as oranges. Ideal as an impressive feature tree. Very fast growth rate.
Plant in full sun, protect from frost when young and water regularly during establishment.
