Luma apiculata is an evergreen shrub or small tree from Chile and Argentina. It can grow to 10 metres. Its small, aromatic leaves respond well to pruning so it is commonly used as a hedge. It also makes a wonderful specimen tree if left unpruned. With age it forms an outstanding trunk with sinuous cinnamon brown branches. Its bark peels to reveal streaks of pink and beige.

It is frost hardy, and thrives in full sun to light shade and well drained soils. Luma apiculata is a versatile plant suitable for hedging, screening and topiary; and makes a spectacular specimen tree.
