Among the most spectacular conifers this monkey puzzle tree is the hardiest. The scale-like leaves are dark green, sharp-pointed. This species is said to be 60 million years old.
It dislikes atmospheric pollution and hot and dry soil. It does surprisingly well in our climate, too, if you provide a winter shelter. In some instances a fleece is enough, younger plants might need a stronger cover. Avoid freezing winds and southern sunny walls where the temperature is high in winter during the day and low at night. Soil tolerant. It is usually 1-2m tall, in protected areas can grow up to 5-8 meters.
