Dwarf Plum Pine

$17.90 ($17.75-$17.90 choose a size)

Dwarf Plum Pine is a member of an ancient family of conifers called Podocarps. The fruit of this specimen is much like it's tall cousin the Plum Pine - Podocarpus elatus, where the fleshy, edible part is actually a swollen stem that holds the seed. The 'fruit' is sweet and refreshing with a jelly like texture. Dwarf Plum Pine is a medium shrub or small tree usually around 2m, with glossy leaves that end in a sharp point. The trees are dioecious, meaning male and female parts are on separate trees. It is best to plant at least 3 seedling to ensure there is the likelihood of at least one female. The tree is found in sheltered East Coast locations and gullies in adjacent ranges.

White Bean

$14.90

White Bean is a fast growing tree found on the Eastern seaboard, north from the Clarence River, NSW to North Qld and into SE Asia. It has a handsome form, as the tree develops an open branched structure, and the compound leaves cluster at the ends of the branches giving the foliage a feathery look. Attaining a maximum height of 35m and a stem diameter of up to 80cm when fully grown, it is a wonderful addition to rainforest regeneration plantings. It is well adapted to dry periods and does like good drainage in wet times.
