Podocarpus macrophyllus (Kusamaki) Details

Podocarpus macrophyllus, commonly known as the Japanese Yew Pine, is a small and showy tree grown for its form and foliage. It features dense and lush, dark green leaves held on slender stems. This evergreen grows with a somewhat narrow and rounded habit to about 8 m tall and 4 m wide. It prefers a full sun position that is well-drained site, and is tolerant of extended dry periods, coastal environments, moderate frost, and some wind. Podocarpus macrophyllus makes for a lovely specimen in a NZ garden and is also well suited to being trimmed into a hedge, used for screening and shelter, planted to soften a bland wall, or included in a mixed planting.
