Podocarpus macrophyllus is native to Japan and southern China. It is an upright shrub or small tree with flat dark green needle-like leaves and is used in foundation plantings, as single specimens and as informal hedges.This plant is a fast grower if fertilized in the first few years and can attain heights to 40' if not kept pruned to smaller sizes. It does well in full sun to shade and is salt and heat tolerant. The stems of Yew Pine are popular and attractive additions to flower arrangements. Podocarpus macrophyllus is disease and pest resistant.
