(Podocarp)

Podocarpus is a large genus of over 100 species of evergreen trees and shrubs native to the sub-tropical and tropical regions of the world. The plants are coniferous, bearing reproductive cones and mostly dioecious which means male and female cones are produced on separate plants. The male flowers are yellow or red on catkin-like (pendent flower spikes) cones borne among the leaves or at the ends of the branches. The female flowers are green and produced on scaly cones. The fruit is fleshy,...

The shiny green to dark blue-green leaves are flat but narrow. Each blade has pointed ends, "rolled-under" edges, is often curved...

(Yew Pine)

Yew pine is a versatile small to large tree perfect for hot humid regions. Its feathery branches are covered with long, narrow lance-like evergreen leaves. This native of Japan and China is dioecious, meaning plants are either male or female. If pollinated, the female plants will display attractive clusters of blue and purple fruits near branch tips.

Yew pine can be treated as a hedge, topiary or espalier or its lower branches can be pruned to form an attractive small tree. This tough plant thrives...

(Ming Aralia)

Grown for its elegant, lacy foliage, this upright evergreen shrub hails from the western Pacific and Southeast Asia. Ming aralia's finely divided pinnate leaves are dark green with a reddish tinge. The greenish flowers and black fruit are rarely produced.

Ming aralia grows best in full to partial sun and fertile, evenly moist soil. Soil must be well-drained to prevent root rot. Humidity ensures the delicate leaflets do not quickly brown and drop away. In winter, keep the soil slightly drier....

The fruits are loaded with seeds and will self-sow in landscapes, and with a viciously spined canopy, makes it difficult and unpleasant to remove. It is considered an invasive woodland intruder in some parts of the eastern United States.
