Extremely rare offering of this NW Argentina-SE Bolivia version of the Chilean Crinodendron patagua.  This large shrub to small 20'-30' multi-trunked tree has evergreen leaves and small white bell flowers.  Quite fast growing and is one of the primary species in the Podocarpus parlatorei forests.  Hardiness is unknown but C. patagua has frozen solid here in a gallon pot at 17F, defoliated, and grew away in the spring like nothing happened.  Hopefully another similarity these two species have in common.  A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering
