Product Description

Fresh Foliage and Easy Evergreen Growth for California

Why Yew Podocarpus Trees?
Versatility in planting and low-maintenance growth – an amazing combination that makes the Yew Podocarpus second to none. The Yew is famous for its attractive pyramidal habit and dense, upright branching, which is well-suited to gardens, patios and beyond.

Plus, its evergreen foliage and contrasting colored fruit stand out. The small berries that emerge attract birds for a wildlife show but are resistant to damage by deer, so the Yew’s graceful appearance couldn’t be easier to maintain and enjoy in your landscape.

Why is Better
But the best part about the Yew Podocarpus is its strong beginnings. For starters, it’s specifically chosen for top benefits and is hand-selected by horticulturists to thrive in California. So, it’s a proven performer, no matter where you plant it because it adapts to your needs. And because it’s planted, monitored and shipped with care, all with its roots intact, you get the absolute best results.

This Yew Podocarpus is Golden State-grown specifically for California landscapes, meaning it fits right in at home. The extra work has been completed long before your Yew arrives to your door. If you’re looking for a fresh, California-grown evergreen, look no further than the Yew Podocarpus Tree!

Planting & Care

Planting Instructions: They’re adaptable, resistant to disease, pests and more, but your Yew Podocarpus needs proper care to thrive.

First, choose an area with at least 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. After scouting the location for your Yew, dig a hole that’s at least two to three times wider than your tree’s root ball. Once you’ve placed your Podocarpus, back fill its soil, tamp down to avoid air pockets and then water to help establish its roots.

Watering: It’s moderately drought tolerant, but regular waterings are important (one or two thorough waterings weekly) for the first few growing seasons to establish the Yew’s root system. If you’re not sure when to water your Yew, simply check the surrounding soil, down to around 2 or 3 inches. If your tree’s soil is dry, it’s time to water it.

Once it’s established, you can reduce frequency, but somewhat regular watering is important (depending on your soil needs, once a week should be fine).

Fertilizing: The Yew Podocarpus is slow growing, so it benefits from fertilizer. Feed your tree with a well-balanced formula in early spring, before new growth emerges.

Pruning: Prune your Yew Podocarpus Tree annually for your desired shape or landscape needs.
