Description

Araucaria araucana, the Monkey Puzzle Tree, is so well-known it needs little introduction. Its enormous stature and symmetrical sculptural habit makes it a dominant feature in any landscape in which it is used. Its overlapping scale-like foliage is tough and spiky and the trunk is tall and straight with the branches radiating form the trunk in a highly architectural manner. It requires a well-drained soil that is ideally slightly acidic. However, its main requirement is plenty of space. How many times have you seen a Monkey Puzzle Tree in a front garden and thought it was poorly situated? And that will be tree that is far from fully grown. So if you have plenty of space then this may be perfect for you... otherwise perhaps not!
