Dense Spreading Yew is a broad spreading evergreen bush with soft, dark green needles and a dense structure. In 10 years plants will be 3 feet tall and about 6 feet wide, if untrimmed. Older plants can eventually be double that size. This is the perfect shrub for planting around your home or covering areas out in the garden, beneath trees, along paths, or in shrub beds. It can be trimmed into neat shapes and its size controlled, or it can be allowed to form a natural undulating plant to cover large areas.

  • Classic dark-green evergreen for sun or shade
  • Broad spreading form is easy to trim, or leave alone
  • Natural dense habit with dark-green needles
  • Ideal for foundation planting and under trees
  • The most cold-resistant yew tree of them all

The Dense Spreading Yew will grow well in almost all light levels, from full sun to light full shade, but not so well in the dense shade beneath evergreens. It grows in most soils, preferring lighter, well-drained soils enriched with organic material. It is fully cold-resistant in zone 4, unlike almost all other varieties of yew. It rarely has pest or disease problems, but it should never be planted in wet, badly-drained soil. Trim as needed, between late spring and early fall.
