Plant Species of the genus Actinostrobus

Information about this genus
Name: Actinostrobus
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Easily grown in any light, well-drained soil, most species withstand slight frosts and are drought tolerant once established. Trim to shape if necessary but do not cut back to bare wood as it is slow to sprout new foliage. Propagate from seed or half-hardened cuttings taken with a heel.
Description: Allied to Callitris, the 3 species in this genus are evergreen conifers native to Western Australia. Shrubby rather than tree-like and rarely over 15?ft (4.5?m) tall, they nevertheless develop a distinctive conical head or crown of foliage. They have the typical tiny, scale-like leaves of members of the cypress family, usually deep green to gray-green in color on olive green to brown stems. The round to oval female cones have sterile scales at their base that develop into a distinctive collar as they mature.
