Shrubby Yew Podocarpus
Podocarpus macrophyllus 'Maki'
|A medium-sized variety of Yew Podocarpus that will accommodate smaller spaces, more ideal for foundation plantings. Slower growing than others with dense upright branching on a pyramidal form, heavily covered by small, dark green, needle-like foliage. A wonderful, slow-growing, low maintenance hedge or screen plant. Evergreen. This dioecious conifer is grown from seed; we can not guarantee if a plant purchased will be male or female.
|Full sun, Partial sun
|Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.
|Conifer; prized for foliage.
|Reaches 8 to 10 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide in 10 years; larger with age.
|Border, Container, Hedge, Poolside, Privacy Screen, Windbreak, Suitable for Topiary
|Narrow form means this plant works well in narrow city side yards. Also works well along backyard fence lines to block undesirable views. Small enough for courtyards and walled gardens, use as a corner element or treat as a semi-formal green column. Very adaptable to contemporary or Asian-inspired themes. A lifesaver on deep, narrow lots and as a columnar divider to separate multistory homes. Grow this tree with other plants that offer similar easy care requirements.
|Kohuhu (Pittosporum); Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia); Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus); Loropetalum (Loropetalum); Abelia (Abelia); Hebe (Hebe)
|Provide enriched, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; prefers regular water but tolerates some drought. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges. Prune annually to shape.
