how far apart to plant Podocarpus?

susannah_greengirlJanuary 28, 2008

I'm planting a screen of either Podocarpus gracilior or henkelii. I have 14 feet of space. Should I plant them 2-3 feet apart? This is in Southern California a few miles from the beach. It seems like a lot of these trees used for hedges are planted very close together.

I don't know enough about henkelii but have seen gracilior around. In my thinking Podocarpus macrophylla or Podocarpus alpinus are much better all around plants.

im pretty sure the cultivar "maki" is the podocarpus most commonly used for hedging?

I'm in LA and there are many striking henkeilii hedges used with modern contmeporary homes and I think they look amazing. I'm planting my Henkelii's today and will space them no more than 2 feet across.
