Araucaria Cones

Naturevolume 43page57 (1890) | Download Citation



IN the garden of the house Bleckley, Shirley Warren, Southampton, there is an Araucaria that for many years past has produced annually a large number of cones. The cones are from 40 to 100 in number, and very large, so that their breaking up and falling on to the lawn is a serious inconvenience, it being difficult to sweep them up. No fertile seeds have been produced by this tree, which from all I have been able to learn is the finest Araucaria in England; the trunk is over 6 feet in circumference some 2 feet above the ground. There is no history of the tree.
