The Buddhist Pine (Podocarpus, Yew Pine) is an upright coniferous tree.
They are gymnosperms like pines, spruces and cycads. They have leaves that are flat and
shaped like needles and have a lustrous dark green color. When pollinated, they produce
small blue fruit that are a nice contrast against the dark foliage. The fruit is toxic and
should not be eaten. When grown in the ground they can grow to a height of 40 feet or more.
