This is regarded as one of the most beautiful and decorative conifers, native to South Africa.
It is a tall growing tree and one that any plant enthusiast would be proud to have in their garden.
The long and slender, glossy foliage droops gracefully and is a lovely bright green colour.
The new growth tips have a slight purplish colour.
Although it is a tall rainforest tree in its natural habitat, it can make a most elegant pyramid of green in the garden.
As with all Podocarp, it is easily trimmed and could be grown in a pot for many years or even treated as a bonsai.
