The discovery of the Wollemi Pine, Wollemia nobilis, in 1994 in Sydney’s Blue Mountains is considered to be a major botanical find in human history - akin to finding a dinosaur alive today. It is one of the world’s oldest and rarest trees and a member of the Araucariaceae family which is thought to have existed 200 million years ago. Previously, the Wollemi Pine was presumed extinct as only fossil records remained.
As fewer than 100 adult trees exist in the wild, the species has been the focus of a unique propagation program. The propagation and worldwide release of the Wollemi Pine was identified as a key conservation strategy in the Wollemi Pine Recovery Plan (developed by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Botanic Gardens Trust).
All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready.
Prior to planting eliminate all perennial weeds. If the soil is acid mix in lime, add organic matter such as compost or manure to light sandy soils
Although the Wollemi Pine is one of the most threatened plants on Earth, it tolerates heat, cold, sun and shade as well as different types of soil. It is the ultimate survivor, having outlived both the dinosaurs and many of its contemporaries in the plant kingdom.
