Cephalotaxus fortunei, also known as the Chinese Plum Yew, Chinese Cowtail Pine, or San Jian Shan, is a coniferous shrub or small tree native to northern Burma and China. Its bark is dark red-brown and peeling in strips, while its vibrant, glossy leaves are the longest in the genus, growing up to 5 inches long. This beautiful shrub is usually multi-stemmed with an open, rounded crown, and can reach up to 60 ft tall. C. fortunei is also known for its anticancer properties. It has been in cultivation since 1848 and is sometimes grown in western gardens. Its shrubby growth habit makes it the perfect candidate for hedging or as an attractive standalone plant.
