Wollemia nobilis (Wollemi Fir)

Sun to Part SunZone: 8-10 1200" tall Origin: Australia

Open House/Web-Only! It's still fairly common in botanical circles to discover new species...at least, small annuals and perennials. What David Noble found in 1994, growing on steep sandstone cliffs of the Wollemi National Forest northwest of Sydney, Australia, is anything but normal. This Norfolk island pine relative had been hiding for nearly 2 million years, but not any longer! The dark green plastic-like foliage emerges glaucous and adorns the trees that can reach 100' at maturity. So far, they have proven to be easy-to-grow, surviving both 15 degrees F and 106 degrees F in the ground at Plant Delights. Further north, I can see container specimens decorated for Christmas with seasonal dinosaur ornaments. If you'd like the opportunity to grow a true living fossil, don't delay. Pot size: 2 qt. (1.892 L)
