An iconic feature of the Southern Californian landscape, Schinus molle is actually a Peruvian native tree that is evergreen and naturally drought tolerant, and will survive even where only occasional rainfall exists. It is an excellent choice for large parks or play areas, in courtyards or along long, broad driveways. It can become very large, exceeding 40 feet in height and width. The trunk will become gnarled and fabulously interesting with age. The foliage is bright green and comprised of many narrow leaflets. The flowers are quite tiny but the papery pink to red berries are wonderfully ornamental in the autumn and winter.
These are wonderfully mature specimens in a 230L pot with a strong girth of approximately 50-60cm and an overall height of 2-3 metres.
