Wholesale Growers of Podocarpus Plants
Podocarpus is one of the best plants for a hedge anywhere from Coral Gables to the palm beaches. Podocarpus is one of the most popular hedging plants in the South Florida area, and for good reason this plant is bug and pest resistant. Also known as a Japanese yew, podocarpus maki or Buddhist pine, Podocarpus is a fast-growing evergreen shrub that provides beautiful color and shade year-round as well as providing amazing privacy for a perfect privacy hedge. Although these plants can reach heights of as much as 30 to 40 feet, they are easily kept at your desired height with regular trimming that will also make the plant grow sideways and get bushier. Podocarpus has abundant, bright green, flat and sword-shaped leaves that grow very close together to provide a nice tight hedge. Podocarpus is incredibly useful for a perfect and beautiful looking privacy hedge. Left alone it will grow into a tall, fence like tree that looks gorgeous and offers privacy. Although it can be shaped or trimmed into topiaries, Podocarpus is most often used as a green screen or formal hedge for privacy or for decoration. Podocarpus hedges are ideal for bright, sunny backyards, gardens and pool enclosures but they also do great in shade and grow gorgeous in our south florida soil. Podocarpus can tolerate some shade, but grows faster and is more colorful in direct sun, also grows at a faster rate when in direct sunlight. Podocarpus will thrive in almost any well-drained soil, but it doesn’t like wet soil, so avoid over watering. Podocarpus is disease, pest, drought and salt resistant making it an iconic hedge. Podocarpus is a very nice hedge that offers a lot of privacy and looks amazing.
