Podocarpus Gracilior

Topiary trimmed as a ball on a stem

This is a member of the south African totara family,one of my favourite garden plants-responds very well to trimming,lush soft green growth in spring summer makes this plant very attractive.You can easily keep this plant in shape,about 3 x trims a year is all it needs to stay in shape.I recommend this plant for containers and in the ground, quite hardy to drought and fairly tolerant of the elements,but very soft growth can be touched a little by frost,but the plants in our garden ,seem to come through winter with flying colours.Feed 2 x per year-September and March with Growers Choice Fertiliser,to keep it looking lush and healthy.
