10 x Taxus baccata (Yew) 60-80cm bare root
10 bare root plants approx 60-80cm tall
English Yew (Taxus baccata) is a slow-growing, evergreen conifer with dense, deep green leaves. It produces bright red fruits in winter which are attractive to birds. Yew is excellent grown as a specimen tree, where it will reach an eventual height of 30ft, or as a thick hedge, where it can be kept pruned to any height from 3ft. It is also great for shaping into topiary, and lends a classic, timeless element to a garden. Yew is very long lived, and tolerant of shady, exposed or dry sites and of pollution.
