Yew Podocarpus: The Evergreen Shrub That Does It All Few plants grow as easily and densely as the Yew Podocarpus. Identified by its soft, green leaves, gardeners can prune the plant as a small, narrow tree or a large and wide shrub. Its best known as an adaptable and low-maintenance plant that enjoys most conditions. Dont let the name fool you - Yew Podocarpus is not a true yew, despite its name. A member of the Podocarpus genus, the Yew Podocarpus is often mistaken for the yew genus Taxus thanks to its similar appearance of needle-like leaves and berries. The blue female cones of the shrubs eventually turn into blue berries that birds and wildlife cant get enough of (but dont eat them yourself). The plant that does it all, you can trim the Yew Podocarpus just about any way you like. When left to grow naturally, it creates a slight pyramid shape, with dense branches and upright growth. If given enough room, it can even provide a spruce-like appearance. Most gardeners use the Yew Podocarpus as a hedge, creating property borders, privacy hedges, and windbreaks. Thanks to a small root system, they can grow in the narrowest of spaces, and even in containers. Some gardeners prune the tree as bonsais or espaliers. Our high standards ensure we only provide plants that will thrive in your garden. Upon shipment, youll receive a stunning plant ready to get in the ground and grow. Order your Yew Podocarpus today! Planting & Care Planting Instructions: Theyre 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 thats at least two to three times wider than your trees root ball. Once youve placed your Podocarpus, back fill its soil, tamp down to avoid air pockets and then water to help establish its roots. Watering: Its moderately drought tolerant, but regular waterings are important (one or two thorough waterings weekly) for the first few growing seasons to establish the Yews root system. If youre not sure when to water your Yew, simply check the surrounding soil, down to around 2 or 3 inches. If your trees soil is dry, its time to water it. Once its 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. | 3 Gallon - Yew Podocarpus - Yew Podocarpus: The Evergreen Shrub/Bush That Does It All See how our 30 Day Happy & Healthy Gaurantee compares to Garden Goods Direct, Lowe's.
