This distinctive and curious evergreen tree goes by the common name of 'Monkey Puzzle' tree, namely as a monkey would probably struggle to climb it.
These trees are rather slow growing, particularly for the first couple of years, though once planted and settled in they can eventually reach a stately height of 10 metres (20 years). They can however be kept at a manageable height through pruning.
Supplied in a 3 litre. Currently 25-30cm tall (from the top of the pot) and circa 3 years old.
At a glance:
Full sun/partial shade
Well drained fertile soil
Will reach a height of 12m and a spread of 8m over 20-15 years
