Versatile, Narrow Privacy Screen!

We all have that one neighbor. Maybe they have an unusual hobby or fitness routine, or a reluctance to hide their garbage cans. No matter what you're faced with, Shrubby Yew Podocarpus, Podocarpus macrophyllus 'Maki', is a green privacy solution that will fit - even in smaller spaces.

Perfect for narrow city side yards or planted as a great screen along a backyard fence line or a walled garden. It makes a perfect green column that works well as a corner element or flanking an entryway. It is a lifesaver as a divider separating multistory homes on modern deep, narrow lots.

It has dense foliage that grows in a natural pyramidal form. (That means less pruning is required on your part!) The foliage is small, comes in a rich, deep green and is softly needle-like. This gives the tree a 'fluffy', finely textured appearance.

It is super easy care, requiring normal water (eventually being waterwise and drought-tolerant) but little else. Give it sun to part shade and let it do its thing. You don't need to prune it unless you want to keep it short. It works great with other low-maintenance plants like Crape Myrtles, Pittosporums, Agapanthus and Abelia.

Don't be bothered by unsightly views. Use Shrubby Yew Podocarpus to bring much needed, Zen-like calm to your backyard oasis today!

  • Prized For Evergreen Foliage
  • Drought Tolerant, Firescaping Windbreak
  • Great Privacy Screen For Poolside
  • Tall & Narrow Columnar
