Australia has a few native Podocarpus, including this species from the interior mountains of New South Wales. Growing as a dense mound of upright shoots, its leaves are deep green, and the new growth is tipped with deep reddish tones. Compact and low-growing enough for the rock garden, it is wonderfully well-behaved. It will appreciate sun or partial shade, and a little summer water on harsher sites. Hardy to around 0 °F.

An excellent new variety of Alpine Totara with new growth that emerges vivid red before turning to a deep forest green. Dense growing to 8' tall by 6' wide in 5 years. Works well as a large specimen, screen or hedge. Full sun to light shade in well drained soil. Appreciates summer water but it will do without it.
