Araucaria araucana - Monkey Puzzle Tree

$54.00
Well known as the Monkey Puzzle Tree, this unusual and 'pokey' evergreen tree is native to central and southern Chile and western Argentina. Popular for the 'reptilian' branches forming a tree with very symmetrical appearance. Prefers a temperate climate, but it hardy to -4 degrees F. Considered a rare tree in cultivation. The name came from England when at one time being shown to some other plant enthusiasts, someone remarked "It would puzzle a monkey to climb that".
