The bark is red-brown, furrowed and peels in narrow, longitudinal strips. The foliage forms in flat sprays with scale-like leaves. The branches may take root if the tree falls.
Hardy down to Zone 2, it can be grown almost anywhere and also used as a bonsai specimen.

All seeds sold are fresh and are stored in conditions suitable to promote the viability of that particular type of seed.
Germinating seeds and growing plants are subject to many other factors including the conditions under which they are raised (including but not limited to: Light, moisture, soil, humidity) and the skill of the individual grower. As the vendor, such factors are completely outside of my control and all seeds and plants are supplied on this basis.The seed count forms an important part of the listing. All counts are exact, the only exception being where the seed is small and difficult to count accurately - in this case the count should be taken to be the minimum we will provide.
