Spectacular Monthly Tree - July 2013

Podocarpus latifolius reaches massive proportions when growing in evergreen, mountain or coastal forest but will be somewhat smaller when growing on exposed mountainsides or in an urban environment. As the name implies, this species of yellowwood has the broadest leaves of the genus and has longitudinally striated bark. The male trees produce 2,5cm long, pinkish cones while the females produce bright red, fleshy receptacles with 1 or 2 fleshy seeds at the tip. These turn blue or purple as they mature. Podocarpus latifolius is a magnificent, evergreen shade tree that is suitable for medium to large gardens as well as parks, public areas and roadside planting. The trees we have in stock are superb, large, well grown specimens that will add instant impact to your landscaping project.
