Our Plants

Grown locally, seed sourced native species that are strong and thrive into the future.

Pseudopanax crassifolius

Has two distinct growth forms. It starts life as a small tree with very thin rigid downward leaves with a serrated edge before transitioning to an adult form after 2m in height, when the lower leaves are dropped and the stem begins to thicken and branch, producing a bushy top. Finally, it becomes a comparatively conventional lollipop-shaped canopy of fairly plain, dark green leaves.

Closely related is Pseudopanax ferox, the toothed lancewood. They are similar except the leaves of P. ferox are more abundant and severely toothed, resembling remotely a bandsaw blade
