Cunninghamia lanceolata

Cunninghamia lanceolata is a large evergreen, coniferous, with flat needles that are as sharply pointed, or lanceolate. This characteristic, combined with its country of origin, gives this plant it's common name.

It was imported from Asia into Europe in the 1800's. It has an open, somewhat pendulous, pyramidal habit when young. Trees are usually multi-trunked.                  Needs a good bit of space to thrive.
