Answer to the Front Page Picture of the Week Question
for April 18th - 27th, 2005
This is Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Prostrata', or 'Prostrata' plum-yew.
Plum-yews are valued for their ability to thrive in full sun or shade, and because deer
do not find them palatable. The structures featured here are the male pollen cones, which
emerge in the spring. Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Prostrata' is hardy in
USDA hardiness zones 6-9.
You can view this 'Prostrata' plum-yew in the
Gotelli Dwarf and Slow Growing Conifer Collections.
