Salt Tolerance: High Good coastal plant; tolerates salt spray and withstands heat! Usage: Podocarpus works well in both informal and sheared hedges and as a foundation shrub. It's effective beside tall buildings, or anywhere a tall, narrow specimen is needed. Because of shade tolerance, makes an ideal courtyard tree.
