Wednesday Vignette, the Podocarpus show

If the non-conifer-like foliage of Podocarpus matudae didn't already have me under its spell, then the way the new foliage unfurls would pull me in for sure.

It's a two-fer for my Wednesday Vignette, because I couldn't decide which photo to use...

  1. A conifer?! who would have thought. The unfurling looks like a delicate dance.

  2. Unfurl seems to be exactly the right word for it.

  3. That new foliage is cool. I didn't know Podocarpus was a conifer. I really think only a gardener notices and appreciates things like this.

  4. Love our matudae, bought one as a rooted cutting a few years ago and is growing slowly but nicely

  8. Such a cool conifer. Mine died this winter, unfortunately. Not a good year for new plants, even if they are normally hardy. My Schefflera taiwaniana should do better in its place.

    1. Ugh. Sorry...hopefully this winter will be much kinder to both of our gardens.
