'Pringles' Dwarf Podocarpus Yew
Podocarpus macrophyllus 'Pringles'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-11  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Podocarpus variety is not reliablywinter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers which can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

Pringles Dwarf Podocarpus is a fantastic, tough little evergreen shrub with handsome dark blue-green needle-like leaves that provide a unique and outstanding texture in the landscape. It grows in sun or shade and the foliage becomes deeper in color in shade. Unlike its much taller growing Podocarpus cousins, Pringles Dwarf grows in a low mound to about 3 to 4 feet with a similar spread, however can be easily maintained at half that size with minimal pruning.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a dense mound 2 to 4 feet tall (depending on pruning) and 3 to 4 feet wide, Pringle Dwarf Yew is ideal for use where low growing natural to formal evergreen plants or hedges are needed in home foundation plantings and landscape borders. Also effective for mass planting on embankments, hillsides and slopes where its roots act as a soil stabilizer for erosion control. Also nice in pots, planters and other containers.

Suggested Spacing:  3' apart for solid hedges;  8 feet or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Pringles Dwarf Podocarpus grows best in a moist but well-drained soil of average to high fertility and full sun or shade - it doesn't care! No pruning necessary however responds well to pruning for shaping or size control.  Cease pruning two months prior to the first frost date in your area. If you get no frost, don't worry about it - prune any time of year.
