[Self-fruiting clone.] Shared with us some years ago by plant geek buddy, Mike Remmick, originally from his stay at the North Carolina State University Arboretum, now the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC. Though he has not been able to locate the original plant during our many trips to this fabulous institution, Mike's specimen has grown to a beautifully conical, 12' ... ok...minus one bout of falling into a creek...but it's back. This form is particularly desirable to us, not only because of its hardiness, having survived well below 0 ºF in Raleigh, but also because of its heavily powder-blue dusted foliage and quite attractive red "berries" produced with no playmates in sight. Average garden conditions; dappled shade to bright light with decent drainage. Doesn't turn down a little manure once in a while. Frost hardy to at least USDA zone 7.

A plant out of the past! This evergreen shrub was planted in black (dark) entryways in the ’50-60’s, but has disappeared since. Sad, since this is a pretty conifer with deep green needles

Info

Beautiful soft textured deep blue-green narrow evergreen foliage on an upright to spreading large shrub or small tree that can be easily be shaped with pruning and shearing. An excellent choice for bonsai, as a specimen plant, hedge, or screen. Mature plants will produce purplish black fruit when mature. Can grow into a medium sized conical tree if left unpruned. The pulp of Podocarpus fruit considered edible but it is recommended that humans avoid ingesting the seed itself as it is considered to be poisonous but is much enjoyed by birds. Drought tolerant once established.
