Podocarpus ‘Blaze’ is a low, compact, hardy, spreading conifer, growing to about 20 in (50 cm). The foliage is dark green in summer, bronze-purple in winter, and has orange new growth in spring. It produces female flowers and needs to be pollinated by a male plant to produce berries. Hardy in the UK.
Podocarpus ‘Blaze’ was raised in 1986 by Graham Hutchins of County Park Nursery, Hornchurch, Essex, UK. It is a cross between Podocarpus lawrencei from Australia, and Podocarpus nivalis from New Zealand.
