Why plant Maki Yew Plum Pine?

Interested in a smaller shrub with adaptable characteristics and beautiful, dense foliage? Look no further than the Maki Yew Plum Pine! Also know as the Shrubby Plum Pine, this dense compact evergreen graces any home or landscape with its dark green needles, presenting in a spiral growth pattern. The Maki also provides a narrow growth habit, making it perfect for smaller spaces as well as container growth. In spring, the Maki Yew Plum Pine produces its own unique blooms of cone structures, which are visually appealing but not showy. This pine also produces arils, or fruit like seeds that come in an array of colors such as blue, purple, and red. These colorful seed pods attract birds for a festive feast in late summer through fall!

The Maki Yew Plum Pine are drought and deer tolerant, so, win/win! They offer a more compact shape and size in comparison to other Yew varieties, making this a perfect fit for smaller spaces - including in home when grown in a container! This shrub does well when utilized inside due to its low light tolerance, making this an wonderful option for a bonsai tree. In warmer climates, the Shrubby Yew Pine is best used outdoors as a border, hedge or even privacy screen!

How To Plant Maki Yew Plum Pine

Resilient in many ways, the Maki offers adaptability when considering its ability to thrive in almost any condition. Accepting most soil types, this shrub will do best in well draining soils. When thinking of lighting, this shrub manages full sun to partial, and is even capable of enduring low light locations like in your own home! Speaking of in-home use, this shrub does well grown in containers, opening up a plethora of locations to enjoy your new Maki Yew Plum Pine!

How To Water

For best growing conditions when first planted water deeply and keep the ground moist but not soggy to avoid root rot until established. Once settled in water as needed. Prompting drought tolerance, we advise checking your local weather during hotter, more dry periods and water accordingly.

How To Fertilize

Feed Maki Yew Plum Pines in the spring as it begins to actively grow for the season; we recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food.

How To Prune

The pruning needs of the Maki Yew Plum depends on how you choose to display it. With the slower growth habit and dense evergreen foliage this shrub is a popular option for topiary. While most other pruning needs are to remove any damaged or diseased branches, you may do a full pruning in fall to promote new growth in the upcoming spring.
