Cephalotaxus Overview

A genus frequently known by the names plum yew or cowtail pine, it’s comprised of 8 evergreen or deciduous, coniferous trees or shrubs. They possess needle-shaped leaves which resemble the foliage of yew trees and come from cool, moist environments in Eastern Asia.

How to propagate Cephalotaxus

Seed

Propagate from seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true).

Cuttings

Evergreen current growth cuttings in autumn to spring. Deciduous softwood cuttings in summer.
