W, it sports an upright habit that can be used for a number of landscape applications. The soft color palette allows you to create foundation hedge lines or privacy screens that you can build on with any variety of color combinations or textures.

Q:Do these help block noise from pool equipment? I'm considering putting up a hedge of them for privacy abd to block noise. Thx

Answer This Question

A:  Roman Candle Podocarpus shrubs, known for their dense foliage and upright growth habit, can be effective in providing a visual barrier and potentially helping to muffle noise from pool equipment. The dense evergreen foliage of Podocarpus can act as a natural screen, enhancing privacy and serving as a visual buffer. While they may not completely eliminate all noise, the shrubs can contribute to reducing and diffusing sound to some extent. However, it's important to consider that the effectiveness of any hedge in blocking noise depends on various factors such as the density of the planting, the distance from the noise source, and the specific characteristics of the shrubs. Additionally, combining the hedge with other sound-blocking elements, such as a fence or wall, can further enhance its noise reduction capabilities. Before planting, it's advisable to consult with a local landscaping professional to ensure the optimal placement and arrangement for achieving the desired privacy and noise reduction goals.

      Southern Living 2Gal Roman Candle Potocarpus
      very dissapointed! it was suposed to be a 2 Gal shrub. it was not. it was bunch of twigs thrown in a pot! No established root system. Expect more from a brand like Southern Living. Tried to save it by putting back in a pot but they are dying too.

        The description said zone 7, but the tag says 7b. In my 7a garden it's likely this plant will suffer winter damage every year and maybe not survive. The description is misleading. I would not have ordered this if the website had said 7b.
        Zone 7b not 7a. Misleading description.
