Perhaps Podocarpus macrophyllus? Common name is Buddhist Pine. Are the needles soft?

Thank you. Yes. The needles are the texture of leaves and are soft and flexible.

Lovely plant. I'm fairly confident of the id but hopefully others will chime in to confirm. You can check out some pictures and care info in the Plant database if you are interested. Smiling

Yes, Podocarpus.

My first thought was Banana-Leaf Ficus (Ficus maclellandii 'Alii')





But I think it does more resemble Weeping Podocarpus (Afrocarpus gracilior)

I agree it's Podocarpus gracilior. This is now considered an Afrocarpus.

Thank you, one and all.
We love this plant but are moving and cannot take it with us.
Knowing what it is, we can now try to find it in our new local. Thank You!
