Design Ideas: With its dense, upright form, this Podocarpus can become a columnar corner plant. Line them up, with spaces in between, as a repeating element behind traditional perennial borders. Plant as a solid hedge for a manicured privacy screen along property lines and side yards. In warm-winter climates, it makes a great evergreen background that can be shaped to your needs. Excellent choice for front yards needing separation between multistory buildings.

Provide enriched, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; prefers regular water but tolerates some drought. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges. Prune annually to shape.

History

The tree is grown in China for its religious symbolism related to its appearance which suggests the lohans, followers of Buddha, often depicted on temple walls. Therefore aged specimens of this "lohan pine" tree are frequently found on temple grounds.
