Another living fossil that has not been around quite as long as Ginkgo but fossil records date back as far as 50,000,000 years ago. Despite being around for so long it was not actually discovered until 1941. They are large deciduous conifers that are fast growing and conical in growth habit. Height can be up to 30m+ and has a very fibrous reddish brown bark that is slightly squidgy to touch. The flowers and cones are not of any significance but the linear leaves are pale green turning brownish red to yellow in the autumn.
Happy in any moist but well drained soil with a full sun aspect.
Sent as a young plant in a 9cm pot. May be cut back for shipping and will be sent as dormant plants in winter.
