    County Park Fire is a low-growing yew that provides year-round color.

WHAT: County Park Fire (Podocarpus alpines) is a low growing yew. Its dramatic changing coloration is something that sets this shrub apart from others.
The brilliant winter bronze foliage is tipped with a vanilla hue in the spring that turns salmon pink and carmine red before achieving its dark green color. It is a natural kaleidoscope for the garden.
SUN OR SHADE: County Park Fire requires full sun to achieve its color variations.
SIZE: At 2 feet by 2 feet it has many applications in both small and large gardens.
SEE IT: At the WSU Snohomish County Master Garden Demonstration Garden at Jennings Memorial Park, 6915 Armar Road, Marysville.
