Podocarpus macrophyllus maki

Shrubby Yew

These evergreen subtropical trees and shrubs are grown outdoors in the warmest regions of the United States for their attractive foliage. If planted near a male pollinizer, female trees bear fleshy red fruits. Use them as hedges, high screens or in groves. Need shade in hot climates. Stake when young until trunk develops. Prune to any shape. May develop chlorosis in heavy and damp or alkaline soil.
