Wollemia nobilis

2016/8/11 14:34:56
Wollemi pine (Wollemia nobilis) Long thought extinct, the wollemi pine was discovered in 1994 in a remote section of Australia. With only a small grove in existence, a plan was developed to save the tree from extinction by propagating it and selling its offspring. Trials in the U.S. have placed the wollemi pine in Zones 7 to 11. Grow it in full sun. Because this tree has been around since the time of the dinosaurs, it's safe to say it is long-lived. And apparently brontosaurus browsing isn't a problem. Noteworthy Characteristics: One of the oldest and rarest plants on Earth, there are less than 100 mature wollemi pines known in the wild. They have unusual pendulous foliage with bright green new tips in spring and early summer. This pine was discovered in Wollemi National Park, 125 miles west of Sydney, Australia.    Care: Provide full sun and moist but well-drained soil. Much more care information is available on wollemi pine's own  web site .
