UNIQUE OFFERING!

Bottle Trees & Pony Tail Palms!

Tamata has secured a very limited supply of Queensland Bottle Trees (Brachychiton Rupestris) and Pony Tail Palms (Beaucarnea Recurvata).

These are stunning plants and offer a truly unique landscape experience.

The Bottle Tree is an Australian icon tree. Tough and maintenance free they also grow well in the northern region of New Zealand although they do tolerate temperatures down to -5 degrees C.

Bottle Trees currently available from Tamata Ornamental Tree Nursery are from 13 to 18 years old and range in height from 2.5 metres to approximately 3.0 metres with bag sizes 60, 80, 100 and 160 litre.

The Pony Tail Palm is equally unique and is an excellent companion plant for the Bottle Tree. The similarity of their nature and habitat make them ideal landscape mates.

The Pony Tail Palm is really not a palm at all but a member of the Lilaceae (lily family) and is known by several names including "elephant's foot" and "bottle palm".

Native to the desert of Mexico, Pony Tail Palms grow well in either containers or planted in the ground. When planted they can grow to 6.0 metres and taller with no two specimens alike.

Pony Tail Palms currently available from Tamata Ornamental Tree Nursery are approximately 25 years old and range in height from 2.0 to 3.0 metres in a 380 litre bag.
