The Pringles Dwarf Podocarpus Yew is the dwarf cousin of the Japanese Yew reaching a mature size of 3-4ft H x 3-4ft W. This Yew is an ornamental evergreen shrub that originates from parts of China, and Southern Japan. The Pringles Dwarf Yew has attractive large needle-shaped glossy dark green foliage that provides interesting texture in the landscape. This shrub is often used in Asian inspired and woodland gardens, or used as accents, specimens, foundations, sheared hedges, espaliers, and topiaries.
