Would that be Podocarpus macrophyllus.

Hmm, we used to have Yew Pine (Podocarpus macrophyllus) and the growth habit was totally different than the weeping variety. I still have a Weeping Podocarpus (Afrocarpus gracilior) in the yard which is what the plant in Paul's photos reminded me of with that weeping/drooping habit.

Thanks Lin, I'm only familiar with the one type. Famous for hedges here.

Been feeling kinda weepy & droopy myself.

You're better off here, Dave. I won't be renewing on DG again. That was the last straw.

Sorry. I should have known by the plants in the background.

But, I wish I knew why people are so secretive and reluctant to give any information that might help with identification....

One would think they would want as accurate an ID as possible.
