Athough the kauri eventually grows to an immense height, slow growth and pyramidal shape makes it a suitable specimen for the larger garden. Plant in sun or shade. Protect from frosts and wind while young.

One of our most beautiful small trees. The foliage is most attractive with rosy pink undersides showing in the wind. Bunches of creamy flowers in spring are followed by red seed capsules.

A rapidly growing small tree particularly suitable for providing shelter for other slower growing species and for soil stabilisation. Produces an abundance of red berries in late summer making a very attractive display and is enjoyed by birds. Shade or sun
