This amazing hybrid of the Chilean native Araucaria araucana and the south Brazilian Araucaria angustifolia will hopefully create an adaptable plant for more of the country. A. araucana is winter hardy to Zone 6 but hates moist summers, while A. angustifolia hates cold winters. It is our hope that these F2 hybrids (the siblings have even had meaningful sex) will combine the best genes of each species, but of course there is always the chance they will combine the worst genes and die quickly. To quote that great gardener, Dirty Harry, "You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya punk?"
