The Maki Podocarpus is a unique upright evergreen bush reaching 6 to 8 feet in ten years, although it is easily trimmed to keep it smaller. It has long needles and looks somewhere between a yew tree and a pine tree. It makes a great hedge or screen, or a specimen plant anywhere. Plant it in beds with other shrubs or evergreens, around the foundations of your home, or on either side of a gate or doorway. Grow it in the ground in zone 7 or warmer, or in a container in colder zones, bringing it indoors for the coldest months. It also thrives indoors as a houseplant all year round, and it grows in all light conditions, from full sun to full shade.

  • Unique upright evergreen with pine-like foliage
  • Grows in all light conditions, indoors or outdoors
  • Salt-resistant for coastal planting
  • Ideal indoor plant for low-light conditions
  • Easy to trim to control the size and shape

Grow the Maki Podocarpus in moist, well-drained soil in all light conditions. In alkaline soil, if the new leaves look yellowish, treat with chelated iron and feed with fertilizer for acid-loving plants. In containers use regular or acid-loving potting soil. This plant is usually pest and disease free, not eaten by deer, and it is very resistant to salt spray, making it ideal for coastal planting.
