Taxus baccata - Yew tree 1.5m tall

Taxus baccata or Yew is an evergreen ideal for hedging. Yew is a very tough and long lived tree which can be used for hedging or grown as a specimen tree on its own. The short, dark green needles form a dense coverage and respond well to being clipped become even thicker. Small red fruits appear in autumn which are loved by birds but are poisonous to us if ingested.

Very commonly clipped into topiary shapes and often used as shaped, abstract or cloud pruned hedges.

Grows in all soils but must have good drainage so the ground does not become waterlogged.

Growing to 10m tall as a specimen over a good number of years Taxus baccata is ideal for large gardens and parks but as it is also great for clipping and is commonly  used  as a hedge or screening plant.
