Podocarpus henkelii | Henkel?s yellowwood quart plant
Quart plant of Podocarpus henkelii | Henkel?s yellowwood. Featuring long 5-7 inches blue-green leaves droop on sweeping branches on this evergreen tree. Grows to 25 to 35 feet tall by 15 to 25 feet wide. The foliage is distinctive, dense, heavy, shiny, dark green, conspicuously drooping. Plant in sun or part shade with regular watering. It is moderately drought-resistant and frost-hardy but grows best on moist sites in sandy or loamy soil. It can tolerate less favorable sites, but then grows very slowly and can perform poorly in heavy clay soils. It is a very neat and decorative tree suitable for both home gardens and large landscapes where it can be an excellent specimen tree for lawns or even a street planting. It can also be used in hedges and formal gardens, as it can be pruned to the desired shape. Hardy in zones 8-11.
