Gymnostoma australianum, Daintree Pine

Gymnostoma australianum Daintree Pine

This is a beautiful small native conifer which hopefully will become more widely known as a garden accent plant or for use as a hedge plant. It grows to about 2 metres and stays in a compact conical shape. The little cones are quite attractive as well. Its hardiness ,frost tolerance and suitability for coastal districts make it a great garden or landscaping plant. It tolerates shade well.
2017 update: I had a batch of mature ones in 300mm for sale which have now all sold and I will have more available at some future date.
