Podocarpus elongatus is the smallest of the Yellowwood trees and is very hardy and evergreen.
It has attractive narrow, blue-green leaves and is slow growing.
The female cones develop into fleshy, bright red, edible fruits with 1 or 2 seeds that mature rapidly. (Male and female cones on separate trees.) Cones are visible on the trees from January to May.
A beautiful tree ideal for a small garden. Plant in shade or semi-shade and well-drained soil with plenty of compost. Makes an excellent container plant and is the only Yellowwood suitable for a small garden.
