The other day we found some Wollemi pines for sale. Wonderful!! Needless to say we bought one. These only came onto the market late last year. They are a rare & extremely endangered species, thought to have become extinct two million yrs ago, & were discovered in a national park near Sydney, Aust. just over 10 yrs ago. This park has since been given World Heritage listing, mainly because of these pines. There are only about 100 mature specimens in the wild & in order to protect them a few seedlings & cuttings were taken for propagation. These finally came on to the market late last year, the first being auctioned for a very good price & royalties from sales go to the protection of the pines & other rare & endangered native species. All pines sold have to have an authentification cert. It is an extremely weird, but magical, tree, it looks as though Dr Seuss designed it!!! It's a pine, but does not have needles!! The branches grow out from the stem at all different angles, up ,down & around & have a fern-like quality, but are pretty tough. The bark looks like bubbling chocolate & it can tolerate wide extremes of climate. Make good indoor & outdoor plants, inthe wild specimens can grow to 40 metres, mine is 60cms (2ft) & is in a pot out on our shady patio, hope it will be as happy there as we are happy to have it. Just so excited about it, I had to share my delight.
