Araucaria araucana, Araucaria imbricata, Monkey Puzzle Tree, Chilean Pine

Family: Araucariaceae
Monkey Puzzle Tree, Chilean Pine
Origin: South America
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageThorny or spinySeaside, salt tolerant plant

Among the most spectacular are forests of pure Araucaria Araucaria araucana, the hardiest of the genus, is a large, bizarre-looking evergreen, 60-70ft. tall and 30 to 35 feet wide, though the tallest specimens in its native haunts have been measured at over 150 ft. It forms a loose, symmetrical, see-through crown, pyramidal in youth, eventually with a rounded or flattish top. The scale-like leaves are dark green, stiff, sharp-pointed and densely arranged on upwardly-sweeping branches, looking more reptilian than coniferous in character. Because of this it comes to know surprise to most people that this species is estimated to be around 60 million years old, based upon fossil record known today.

Preferring well-drained, volcanic soil, this species is surprisingly tolerant of many soil types. It is very tolerant of maritime exposures, salt-laden winds, and thrives in cool, mild climates. It dislikes hot-dry soils and atmospheric pollution.

Araucaria sp., Monkey Puzzle, Bunia Pine, Parana Nut

Araucaria heterophylla
 Araucaria sp.
Family: Araucariaceae
Monkey Puzzle, Bunia Pine, Parana Nut
Origin: New Caledonia, Australia, South America
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliageEdibleThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Araucaria is a genus of coniferous trees. There are 19 species in the genus, with a highly disjunct distribution in New Caledonia (where 13 species are endemic), Norfolk Island, eastern Australia, New Guinea, Argentina, Chile, and southern Brazil.

Fossil evidence indicates that ancestral araucaria forests resembling the present-day Monkey Puzzle date back to the age of dinosaurs.

Some of the species are relatively common in cultivation because of their distinctive, formal symmetrical growth habit. Several species are economically important for timber production and the edible seeds.
