|Botanical Pronunciation||poh-doh-KAR-pus mak-roh-FIL-us|
|Average Size at Maturity||Reaches 8 to 10 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide in 10 years; larger with age.|
|Bloom Time||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Design Ideas||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.|
