Enhance your outdoor spaces with the lush and versatile Maki Podocarpus, a superb choice for creating elegant hedges and privacy screens. Native to Japan and China, this evergreen shrub is highly prized for its dense, upright growth and adaptability to a variety of landscaping designs.

The Maki Podocarpus, also known as the Buddhist Pine, thrives in a range of conditions, making it an ideal choice for hedges, topiaries, or as a stately solitary specimen. Its slender, leathery leaves form a thick canopy, providing excellent privacy and noise reduction. In urban settings, this plant is especially valuable for its ability to absorb pollutants, making it a natural choice for green living.

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.
