Plant list - Conifers

Tasmania has an interesting variety of conifers, ranging from tall trees to small, creeping alpine plants.

Eight of the species are endemic to Tasmania, with only Podocarpus lawrencei and the Callitris species growing on the mainland.

With the exception of the two species of Callitris, the Tasmanian conifers are adapted to moist, cool conditions. All grow well in pots.
