The Spreading Japanese Plum Yew is a broad, spreading evergreen shrub, growing between 2 and 3 feet tall and spreading 6 feet wide, and ultimately wider. It resembles the English yew, but it thrives in hot and humid areas where that tree normally fails. It has attractive dark-green leaves and it is naturally dense. Grow it in deep shade or in partial shade, in those difficult areas where nothing seems to survive. Use it along a shady path or driveway, or on the shady side of your house. Easily trimmed for a more formal, hedge-like look.

  • Spreading evergreen for full shade
  • Grows well in heat and humidity
  • Covers large areas but stays low-growing
  • Can be easily trimmed as needed
  • Very low maintenance

Grow The Spreading Japanese Plum Yew in partial or full shade, or in full sun in zone 6. It thrives in any well-drained soil that is not too dry, and it has moderate drought resistance once it has become established in your garden. Trim at any time between late winter and mid-fall, and it even tolerates being cut back to bare branches. Pests and diseases normally don’t bother it and deer leave it alone. Unlike English yew the foliage is not poisonous.
