"Calocedrus rupestris"

I'd think that ought to be OK outdoors in southern Florida?

"A suckering Podocarp - P. drouynianus"

Fascinating! Nearest thing to a herbaceous conifer? Apparently herbaceous conifers are known in the Mesozoic fossil record.

Resin - Check out P. micropedunculatus (grows in Borneo). It is a vigorous suckering, colony forming species and apparently forms "groves" like bamboo!

Great Scott! Podocarpus henkelii is my favorite conifer that I cannot grow, and that one is like P. henkelii on steroids!
