79 Golden Totara Podocarpus totara 'Aurea'

Family: Podocarpaceae

Golden totara is a New Zealand native hybrid which is a smaller growing pyramidal form of the green totara (Podocarpus totara). Although seen as a cultivar, popular for garden planting, the golden totara occurs naturally and the first to be brought into cultivation came from beside the Rangitikei River near Kakariki. Cutting material was collected by Sir Vic Davies, of Duncan & Davies fame.
