A handsome and elegant specimen tree which is native to South America which can be found from Cape Horn northward up to the Andes. The branchlets, arranged in a herringbone formation are covered in glossy, small, bright green leaves. The bare trunk and branches are especially striking in winter when the horizontal silvery-grey lenticels stand out against the chocolate coloured bark.
