Product details

Note: The 1.5-2.0m specimens are supplied in 100L containers.

Taxus baccata, known as English Yew, is a versatile evergreen native tree that is often grown as a hedge.

Incredibly long-lived, it is often associated with churchyard planting and rejuvenates itself remarkably well if pruned hard in the early spring.

It's important to note that every part of the Yew tree is poisonous to humans and animals, except for the red flesh of the berries produced by female plants.

The whole berry is poisonous, as such, we advise against consuming them.

Like most evergreens, Taxus baccata is not tolerant of waterlogged soils and thrives best on free-draining lighter land. Great for gardens, there are plenty of gardeners who use this adaptable tree for topiary or formal columns and cones.

Taxus baccata can grow on either acidic or chalky soils so long as they are well drained.

Mature height: 7-12m
