Pringle Podocarpus (Podocarpus macrophyllus 'Pringle') is an attractive evergreen shrub known for its elegant appearance and versatility in various landscape settings. This slow-growing plant is perfect for those looking to add year-round color and structure to their garden.
Pringle Podocarpus is a compact, columnar shrub that typically grows to a height of 3 to 5 feet and a width of 3 to 6 feet. This plant is suitable for USDA hardiness zones 8 to 11, and it thrives in full sun to partial shade. Pringle Podocarpus prefers well-draining, fertile soil and can tolerate a wide range of pH levels. It is also drought-tolerant once established, making it an excellent choice for low-maintenance gardens. This shrub is often used as an accent plant, hedge, or privacy screen, and it can even be grown as a container plant or trained into a small tree.
One of the most appealing features of Pringle Podocarpus is its dense, attractive foliage. The plant is adorned with glossy, dark green leaves that are long, narrow, and slightly curved, resembling the shape of a pod. These leaves create a lush, textured backdrop in the garden and provide year-round interest. The evergreen nature of Pringle Podocarpus makes it a perfect choice for gardens in need of constant color and structure.
Although Pringle Podocarpus is dioecious, meaning it has separate male and female plants, it is the female plants that produce fruit. The fruit is a unique and interesting feature of this plant. They are small, fleshy, and oval-shaped, initially green and maturing to a vibrant shade of purple or blue when ripe. These fruits are borne on red, stalk-like structures called peduncles, which add an additional pop of color to the plant. It is important to note that the fruit is not considered edible for humans, but it can attract birds and other wildlife to your garden.
