Northofagus antarctica – Antarctic Beech

Out of stock

I just love this tree as it is full of character. It has a very irregular branch structure and small, crinkly leaves which give off a strong, camphor-like fragrance, especially in spring when they are young and fresh. The bark is covered in small white spots which contrast well against the dark purple stems.
