Info

This conifer from southeast Australia looks much like a yew, but has beautiful purple-tinged new growth, as well as often turning purplish in the winter - a color not commonly seen on the true yews. Although usually advertised as a low, spreading conifer, if it's really happy it can grow into a small tree. It performs beautifully in the Northwest and is a must have for any collector of unusual or Gondwanic conifers, as well as normal people. It appreciates a little irrigation to look its best, and is hardy to around 0 °F.
