Podocarpus outside my laundry room window:







No idea why there's new growth here! But I thought they looked pretty, so here you go.

1. Very pretty!

Itís sort of a silvery green, is it not? Do the green berries turn red eventually?

2. Thanks so much, my dear Ohiogal!

I think the sunlight makes it look more silvery than it truly is, but there is some of that.

And no, the berries don't turn red. I think they're seed pods and they stay green.

3. Very cool.

I've never heard of a Podocarpus tree, so I had to look it up.

Podocarpus is a genus of conifers, the most numerous and widely distributed of the podocarp family, Podocarpaceae. Podocarpus are evergreen shrubs or trees, usually from 1 to 25 metres tall, known to reach 40 metres at times.

4. Thanks, my dear Callalily!

They are lovely and can be pruned into almost any shape. Ours were planted in the 1980's, I think, and we've never done a thing to them.

These are taller than our two-story house! We've never had to water them.

Thanks also for looking them up. I appreciate the info.

5. I had to google Podocarpus. I may plant one as it seems to be poisonous

which means the deer won't eat it

Nice pics tho Dear Peg.
