Podocarpus lawrencei ‘Blue Gem’
From Tasmania, this specimen is both hardy & exotic. It has thick, blunt foliage like that of a conifer, but instead of cones, it produces lush, red “mountain plums.” Arching branches create a rounded, spreading form, and spring growth emerges purple-red, then matures to green, a color that holds through winter. The adaptable, easy plant is an excellent candidate for drier garden sites.
Podocarpus x ‘Red Tip’
In late summer, the short, thin, yew-like foliage of this slow-growing specimen puts on a flush of deep red that holds through winter. The rest of the year, rich, deep-green foliage spirals up the plant’s short stems. It makes a charming, spreading addition to smaller, warmer, drier sites.
