Quite rare in the wild, this is a vulnerable species at risk of becoming extinct in the wild. Torreya jackii is unlike the other Chinese members of the genus and is remarkably similar to Cephalotaxus fortunei, from which it can be distinguished by its sessile seed-bearing structures and by the peculiar, strongly twisted leaf arrangement. The seed takes two summers to mature. This species is not very hardy in Britain, though trees can be grown outdoors in the milder parts of the country.Plants are dioecious, but sometimes monoecious with dioecious branches. Male and female plants must usually be grown if seed is required.
