English Yew (Taxus Baccata) 10 seeds (#557)

Cultivated in gardens for hundreds of years, English yew is a variable evergreen tree or large shrub with flat, supple, black-green needles. Its many cultivars range in habit from low and spreading to upright and columnar. Its toughness, adaptability, tolerance of shearing, and red fleshy fruits (on female plants) make it a popular choice for hedges, foundation plantings, or screening. In the eastern United States it is represented in gardens mostly by its hybrid, Taxus x media, which is somewhat more cold-hardy.
This shrub does best in moist, well-drained, acid to slightly alkaline soil. It fares poorly in extreme temperatures. Give it shelter from harsh sun and wind. Deer and self-sown seedlings can be a problem.
