Taxus Baccata ‘Fastigiata Aurea’ (Common English Yew), 2m Tall, 70 Litre Pot


A slow growing evergreen conifer which forms an attractive shape naturally, without any clipping or trimming.  It is very tightly branched with a compact, upright growth habit.  It forms a dense column of dark green, needle-like foliage.  Conspicuous flowers appear in early spring and are followed by fruits in late summer.  The fruits have bright red, fleshy covering over the seeds.

Ideal for use as a specimen plant, or to add height and winter structure to a mixed border.  It can also be used to create an attractive hedge.  A very sought after tree which gives valuable vertical accent to the garden.
