"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.

Don't share these with my dear wife...I don't know if we could afford the extra green house space they'll require...fantastic collection

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

Its not all my collection - though I am growing some of these. Thanks though.

The Amentotaxus are several species.

I have

A argotaenia
A formosana
A yunnanensis

The species are all related to each other

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