Pseudopanax crassifolius x lessonii 'Sabre' (Lancewood) Details

“Sabre” is a variety of the commonly known Lancewood and is grown for its interesting foliage. It has a distinctive juvenile form which comprises lance shaped leaves that are leathery with a toothed margin, and are dark green with an orange midrib. As the plant matures, the leaves shorten, become darker, and a rounded crown develops. This NZ native generally grows with a single, upright stem as it reaches 3 m tall and 2 m wide. It performs best when planted on a free draining soil in full sun or semi-shade, though it is tolerant of wind, coastal environments, extended dry periods, and frost once established. “Sabre” is commonly included in a mixed planting, used in a tropical garden, maintained in a container, planted around the pool area, included in native revegetation projects, used for shelter or screening, or planted to contrast with leafier plants.
