Saxegothaea Overview

This conifer is distinguished from other trees and shrubs by producing seeds which are exposed on the scales of fruits. As in most conifers, there are woody fruits called cones. The leaves are yew-like being quite broad.

How to propagate Saxegothaea

Seed

Seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true).

Cuttings

Evergreen current growth cuttings in autumn to spring. Deciduous softwood cuttings in summer.
