Particularly narrow growing yew, seldom reaching 8-10 ft tall, with a dense habit and lovely pink-bronze winter color. Can be lightly shorn for formal effect or used as screen or specimen. Happy in sun to shade though the winter color is more striking in bright light. Plants are somewhat drought tolerant especially once established but should be provided summer water for several years. This is a tough and handsome container plant. Frost hardy in USDA zone 6, possibly 5.

An excellent hedging form, this narrow columnar shrub (slowly to 10-20') is hardier than the "Irish Yew" with lustrous dark-green needles. PSh/Med

This yew is used frequently for hedging. It has dense, columnar but compact habit with heavy berry production. Grows to 20' in 20 years.
