The Overall Plant

Cephalotaxus drupacea is a slow-growing, evergreen shrub or small tree that can reach heights of 10 feet, depending on the growing conditions. It is hardy in USDA zones 5-9, which allows it to thrive in a range of climates. The plant prefers well-drained, acidic soil and can tolerate a variety of light conditions, from full sun to partial shade. Its low-maintenance nature and adaptability make it an excellent choice for hedges, foundation plantings, and as a specimen plant.

The Foliage

The foliage of Cephalotaxus drupacea is one of its most attractive features. The dark green, needle-like leaves are arranged in a dense, spiraling pattern around the stems, giving the plant a lush and elegant appearance. The evergreen nature of the foliage ensures year-round interest, making it an excellent addition to gardens where seasonal color is desired.

The Fruit

Cephalotaxus drupacea is known for its unusual fruits, which contribute to the plant's overall appeal. The fruits, called drupes, are fleshy, olive-shaped, and brownish-purple in color. They typically measure about 1-1.5 inches in length and are produced in small clusters. While the fruits are not edible for humans, they do provide a food source for birds and other wildlife.
