'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 reliably winter 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

With its handsome dark blue-green needle-like leaves, adaptability to sun or shade, and it's dense, cushion form, Pringles Dwarf Podocarpus is a fantastic, tough little evergreen shrub that provide a unique and outstanding texture in home foundation plantings and landscape borders. The foliage is deeper green in shade and a medium green in full sun. 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.
