Have you come across a Podocarpus macrophyllus (aka Buddhist Pine, 羅漢松 in Chinese) with red leaves? While most Buddhist Pines only have leaves in green, the Buddhist Pine in Hainan Island has Buddhist Pine with red leaves.

New foliage of most Podocarpus macrophyllus comes in a light green color that gets darker as time passes by, but the new foliage of those in Hainan Island comes in red for a striking contrast.

    Where can I buy one of these? I have come across many evergreens that have yellow new growth. There is even the Picea Abies Rubra Spicata, a spruce tree that has new growth that is red. But this is unusual, and it would be nice to be able to get some.

    The red-leaf Buddhist Pine is from Hainan China
