Graham Hutchins, the British nurseryman who raised many modern selections of Podocarpus, deliberately crossed these two New Zealand species in 1990. From the resulting plants he selected one, later named ‘Havering’, for its rich rusty-orange foliage and reliable coning (Auders & Spicer 2012).
Described by Hutchins (1996) as a vigorous clone of upright habit, female and freely fruiting, with foliage turning light brown in winter.
