Prune It Your Way! The Adaptable Podocarpus

The Podocarpus is a low-maintenance plant with soft, green foliage and hardy nature. Easily pruned, you can decide whether it will grow as a large shrub or a small tree! Amongst the foliage, the plant also produces blue female cones that turn into blue berries that attract birds in the summer.

Part of the Podocarpus genus, it’s often mistaken for a yew due to its needle-like leaves, berries, and name. The Podocarpus is a highly adaptable tree that can survive many conditions and requires minimal maintenance.

Perhaps the most significant feature of the Podocarpus is how naturally it takes to pruning. Most gardeners grow the plant as a hedge, thanks to its dense growth. It works well as a windbreak, privacy hedge, and border between properties.

The Podocarpus also works well in containers and small spaces as a tall accent, since it has a narrow root system. If left untrimmed, the plant naturally has a pointed shape and upright branch growth. With enough room, it can even appear spruce-like.

The Podocarpus was hand-selected and cultivated by our team of plant experts, and you can expect a hardy, beautiful plant ready for planting. Order your Podocarpus today!

Beautiful plants! Well packaged

Great service and product quality. The plants we bought were packaged carefully, and when we took them out of the box, they were soft, beautiful and lush. They’ve been in the ground about two weeks and look beautiful. We had a bit of browning on the tips but I called Customer Service and spoke with the nicest gentleman who explained that that could be from shock. He noted everything in my account record And said to please call back in the next couple of weeks to make sure the plants were still thriving.

Easy arrival

Our Yew Podocarpus arrived when we were told it would, and with complete planting instructions. It’s in the ground, and looks very healthy.
