Pseudopanax crassifolius


Pseudopanax crassifolius

CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A small round headed tree. As a juvenile it does not have branches, just a single stem with distinctive long narrow rigid sharply toothed green to brown leaves. As it matures the adult foliage is shorter and broad, green and leathery, the trunk then branches at the top to form a round bushy top. It has smooth fluted bark. Clusters of greenish flowers are followed by brown fruit. Common in lowland to lower montane forests throughout New Zealand. Best planted with well drained soil, hardy.
