Not that one, but I do grow Cephalotaxus harringtonia and Cephalotaxus harringtonia, 'Erecta'. (sounds like a social disease) How is the Taiwan one different?

Hi Euan,

I have a seedling that is about 1.5 m tall. It is very vigorous and happy here..

Mike - it differs in several ways, in general it has longer softer foliage and the cones are different in size. Also, the undersides of the leaves are quite glaucous.
