Product Overview

Podocarpus gracilior
A unique and beautiful tree that grows naturally upright, displaying branches draped with graceful, fern-like foliage; an elegant and exotic accent on the landscape; can be maintained as an informal screen, or as a smaller container planting

Fern Podocarpus is a dense evergreen tree with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and can be pruned at anytime. It is a good choice for attracting birds to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Fern Podocarpus is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Accent
  • Vertical Accent
  • Hedges/Screening

Features

Fern Podocarpus has attractive grayish green foliage which emerges light green in spring. The narrow leaves are highly ornamental and remain grayish green throughout the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant. The furrowed gray bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape.

Planting & Growing

Fern Podocarpus will grow to be about 50 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 25 feet. It has a high canopy with a typical clearance of 4 feet from the ground, and should not be planted underneath power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more.

This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This species is not originally from North America.
