Looking for a unique addition to your garden or landscape design? Look no further than Cephalotaxus oliveri, also known as Oliver's Plum Yew. This coniferous shrub or small tree is native to China and possibly to Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and eastern India. Its bark is yellow to grayish brown and scaly, and its leaves are linear-lanceolate with a dull matt green adaxial surface. But it's not just its appearance that makes this plant special – its vegetative parts are rich in anticancer alkaloids, making it an important medicinal herb. Unfortunately, Cephalotaxus oliveri is endangered throughout its range due to habitat loss from logging and agricultural expansion, as well as being exploited for its medicinal properties. It's listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, so it requires protection in its natural habitat, especially in the Bidoup and Langbian Nature Reserves. Plant it in your garden to not only enjoy its beauty, but to also support its conservation.
