Keteleeria fortunei, also known as Fortune's Keteleeria, is a beautiful evergreen tree that can reach up to 80 ft in height. Native to Hong Kong and China, this tree can be found in hills, mountains, and broadleaf forests, at elevations ranging from 650 to 4500 ft. Its pyramidal crown and horizontal branches make it a stunning addition to any garden or landscape. In autumn, it produces striking purple-brown cones, which mature to release large oblong seeds with yellow-brown wedge-shaped wings. This species is not only used as an ornamental in warm climates but also in construction and furniture-making. However, it is protected under Chinese forestry regulations due to its vulnerable status. If you are looking for a visually striking tree that would thrive in warm climates, Keteleeria fortunei may be the perfect choice for you.
