Monkey Puzzle

Araucaria araucana

From £20.00

The Victorian's favourite garden tree, the Monkey Puzzle is wonderfully strange and packed full of character.

Size on Despatch - approx. 15-30cm although this can vary according to the growing season.

Habit - Large


Grown in our British Nursery

Growth Rate - relatively slow

Please note that in winter, some of the spiky leaves can turn a bronzed colour. This is a perfectly natural change in some conifers and reflects the low winter light levels causing a reduction in chlorophyll levels. Once summer arrives and light levels increase, then the Monkey Puzzle leaves will return to their normal green.

All our trees and shrubs are grown to be the perfect size for best establishment. For most species this can range from 20-60cm above the root plug. If you would like to discuss specific sizes, please contact us.


The Monkey Puzzle was so named because even a Monkey would have difficulty climbing through the spiky branches.

But the latin name, Araucaria araucana, is named after a Native American tribal Chief who impressed the first European seed collectors.
