Wollemi Pine

I was up at the Miller Botanical Garden in Seattle yesterday. They have 4 Wollemia nobilis that they planted in the garden 4 years ago. The first Winter was a tough one by Pacific North West Standards & there of the plants were quite badly damaged by the cold, 2 lost they growing tips.

Since then though the trees have been doing mush better, last year one started producing male cones & this year that same tree has also produce it's first if rather small looking female cone.
