The Daintree Pine
A Rare Beauty
Gymnostoma australianum is endemic to a restricted area of the Daintree Rainforest. A rare, native and collectible pine. Perfect for those who love to collect rare plants – it’s an added bonus that it happens to be a North Queensland native too!
A compact pine that grows between 3-6m with a naturally beautiful conical shape. It is so naturally beautiful you will not need to get the pruners out often – if at all. It can be used as a singular feature tree or plant it in a row to line a driveway or garden bed. Although it comes from the Daintree Rainforest this Pine is proving that it is tougher than once thought. Although it has not been tested in many area due to its rarity – a standalone Daintree Pine on Castle Hill that is exposed to all the elements is proving that it is adaptable. However, we do recommend to be in a mulched garden with irrigation for best results.
Also known as the “Daintree Christmas Tree” it is a perfect alternative at Christmas time. This Pine is not always easy to come by, so at Project Plants we do our absolute best to stock them whenever they are available. Contact us today about this absolute ‘must have pine’.
