A tree that ages so very well. For the first 15 years or so, the bark is dark and black, with bands of white lenticels showing as horizontal lines. The leaves are small and glossy. The deep green is refreshed in spring with an almost silvery shimmering. Their upright structure is at home in alpine environments, so is as hardy as you’d expect. Ideal as a specimen planting or in groups, a mature version will reach 5 x 3m
Suitable for: Group and specimen planting.
Features: Attractive trunk colour and form with silver shine to leaf.
Botanical Name: NOTHOFAGUS menziesii
