Search Podocarpus
The genus of Podocarpus consists of about 100 species of evergreen, coniferous trees and shrubs. They have dark green, leathery, elongated leaves, or, as in the well-loved Totara, smaller, needle-like, olive green to yellow leaves. They make excellent specimen trees for gardens that have the space to show them off to best effect, or shrubby borders or hedging plants. Commercially they are highly valued for their timber which is used extensively in Maori carvings.
