A most unusual and striking plant, famed for its long and slender leaves. A dark purple, they often appear as almost black. Their unique downward direction is coupled with a jagged edge to protect the plant from predators. A job the juvenile tree does well for several years before transforming into its mature, mop-top like appearance. Its distinctive architectural appearance is well suited to contemporary gardens and those wanting to add texture. Hardy and evergreen, expect it to reach heights up to 4 metres.
Suitable for: Native and group plantings.
Features: Unique form and texture.
Botanical Name: PSEUDOPANAX crassifolium
