Product Description

Nothofagus gunnii – Common names include Tanglefoot, Deciduous Beech or Fagus. It is the only native deciduous tree in Tasmania and the only cold climate winter-deciduous tree in Australia. The leaves of this highland delight turn gold and deep red in April/May, only in Tasmania. It is considered a paleo-endemic species to Tasmania as macrofossils have been discovered within Oligocene sediments both in Tasmania and Antarctica.

This handkerchief shows various Tasmanian Fagus leaves, illustrated at varying scales with a square border.

“These Fagus leaves were collected from a friend’s private Hobart garden, with permission.” Deborah Wace
