Agathis australis Kauri
The eventual size of this iconic tree need not daunt the average gardener. Juvenile plants take about 30yrs to reach a height of 10m, with this pyramidal form lasting for more than 50yrs. This attractive forest giant deserves to be more widely planted. The leaves are narrow and leathery and an attractive bronze colour with age. Although kauri are tolerant of a wide range of conditions, they prefer a rich, moist soil and grow better if not too exposed. Try planting in groves for a majestic effect now and in years to come.
Grows to 10m+ x 5m+
