This listing is for one [1] Chilean Monkey Puzzle (Araucaria araucana) seedling in our "medium" size. Medium seedlings are about 2 years-old, with a root plug about the size of a small soup can. All of our seedlings are seed grown at our small family-owned nursery in coastal Northern California, and, like snowflakes, no two are alike. Foliage size and height varies — the one consistent feature is the size of our root plugs, on which we base our sizing. These beauties are ready to be planted into a 3 – 5 gallon container and placed out of doors. Be sure to let the soil dry down well between thorough drenching. (Transplanting and care instructions included.)

About Chilean Monkey Puzzle:

Araucaria araucana (commonly called the Chilean Monkey Puzzle Tree, Monkey Tail Tree, Chilean Pine, or Pehuén) is an evergreen tree native to central and southern Chile and western Argentina. In the Andes Mountains, these curious trees grow up to heights of 130 feet with diameters of 5 feet, and can live to be more than 1,000 years old. The hardiest species in the conifer genus Araucaria, it is often described as a living fossil.

Chilean Monkey Puzzle Trees are well known for their symmetrical shape, scale-like leaves, and reptilian branches. The leaves are thick, tough, scale-like, and triangular, measuring 1.2–1.6 inches long and 0.39–1.18 inches broad at the base, with sharp edges and tips. They persist for 10–15 years or more, and so cover most of the tree except for the older branches.

These trees are usually dioecious, meaning the male and female cones grow on separate trees, though individuals will occasionally bear cones of both sexes. The male (pollen) cones are oblong and cucumber-shaped, 1.6 inches long at first, then expanding to 3.1–4.7 inches long by 2–2.4 inches broad at the time of pollen release. They are wind pollinated. The female (seed) cones, which mature in autumn about 18 months after pollination, are globose, large, 4.7–7.9 inches in diameter, and hold about 200 seeds each. The cones disintegrate at maturity to release the 1.2–1.6 inch-long nut-like seeds.

In 2013, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) designated the tree as an endangered species due to a continuing decline in the species’ actual area of occupancy and debilitating factors like fire, logging, and overgrazing. Help us plant these awesome trees!

These seedlings are ready to be planted into a 3 – 5 gallon well-draining container and placed out of doors. Drench when you water, followed by a dry-down of the soil before watering again. With regard to winter care, please research the species and compare its wants and needs to what you know about your area.

Absolutely in love with this tree. I purchased 3 and gave 2 to friends who also love it. The seller was great with advice on the care of this tree as well. So cool to have a living fossil.

What a great little tree! It was packed extremely well in a rigid tube, nicely secured. Even though USPS is taking what seems like a lifetime to deliver packages these days, it arrived safe and healthy, and is now in a pot safe and secure. Thanks for a great purchase of a wish-list tree!
