Description

Pseudopanax lessonii 'Moa's Toes' is one of several Pseudopanax lessonii cultivars to come out of New Zealand in recent years. It is characterised by the shape of its foliage which is tri-lobed and by the purple tinges to its glossy leathery leaves. The midrib is a pale pinkish purple and has a narrow yellow-orange band on either side of it. Together with the purplish margins it makes for one of the most distinctive foliages in a genus renowned for its unusual and eccentric foliage.

Growing to a tall upright handsome shrubby bush and later, a small tree, Pseudopanax lessonii 'Moa's Toes' is best in a sheltered warm aspect with partial shade and a moist, well-mulched, slightly-acidic, humus-rich soil and is ideally grown in the company of other evergreens. It is fast-growing and with the right cultivation will quickly form an impressive specimen.
