podocarpus and foggy morn...
Posted by George in Bandon Oregon on 6/30/2017, 8:24 pm, in reply to "Re: Foggy morn pics.."
yes, podocarpus macrophyllus are indeed hardy AND (sadly)rather rare. the Chilean p. salignus I think is even nicer and about as hardy. the Mexican p. matudae looks rather like a more robust foliaged p. salignus and is worth trying in a sheltered spot (seems to do well here---so far). p. henkelii while beautiful is somewhat tender so certainly is more of an experiment up here.
FWIW, the "marine layer" (aka fog, LOL) was here all day so very much a "cloudforest" day.
