Spectacular Monthly Tree - Podacarpus latifolius

The well known Podocarpus latifolius or Real yellowwood is a magnificent medium to large evergreen that is an excellent choice for gardens, parks, streets and any other open, public areas. The narrow, glossy green leaves are an excellent textural foil for other shrubs and trees in the garden. Both male and female trees occur, with the cones on the male trees resembling catkins while the female trees develop round, blue-grey seeds that take on a purplish hue when mature. Podocarpus latifolius is South Africa’s national tree and is protected. This handsome tree almost became extinct in some areas, due to overexploitation by the timber industry to meet the heavy demand for this magnificent timber by fine furniture manufacturers. Nowadays, yellowwood furniture fetches high prices due to its relative rarity.
