Product details

A male form discovered later than its female green counterpart back in the 1880s. It forms a dense columnar tree at maturity with gold tipped margined leaves and stiffly ascending branches. Not that it needs much maintenance but Yew is a very adaptable tree to handle as unlike other conifers its shape and size can be reinstated by severe pruning back into old wood in early spring.

It thrives on most free draining soils and is a firm favourite for small gardens up and down the UK where it is planted in multiples when a structured formality is required. The spring flush of foliage is a lighter yellow than its appearance for the rest of the year and it can tolerate full sun or partial shade

Mature height: 3-5m
Mature spread 1.5-3m
