The Yewtopia Plum Yew is a compact spreading evergreen shrub, growing to 3 or 4 feet tall and wide, and ultimately a bit larger. It can easily be trimmed and clipped into neat hedges and formal specimens, and is very similar in appearance to the English or Japanese yew. However it grows well in hot and humid areas, where those plants do not. The soft needles are up to 2 inches long and they are rich, dark green all year round. This handsome shrub is perfect in shady parts of your garden, where it can be hard to find plants that will grow.

  • Low, spreading evergreen for shady places
  • Very similar looking to spreading yew
  • Soft, dark-green foliage year round
  • Grows well in hot and humid zones
  • Easily trimmed into hedges and formal specimens

Partial or full shade suits the Yewtopia Plum Yew perfectly. In very dense shade the growth may be more open, and slower, but otherwise it is the perfect choice for shady places. It tolerates high temperatures and high humidity in summer very well. Normally free of pests or diseases and not bothered by deer, it is also non-toxic, and so safe for children and pets. It can be trimmed easily at just about any time, and even old, leafless branches will re-sprout.
