Little-known in cultivation and rare in the U.S. this yew-like conifer has sharp-tipped green needle-like leaves. It becomes a tree in the wild but Hillier (Manual of Woody Landscape Plants) says it is the "least grand" of the genus. It usually remains shrubby or a small tree in cultivation. Plant in good soil that is well-drained but not xeric. Native to China.
USDA Hardiness Zone 7 - 9
