Taxus baccata 'Repandens'

English yew

5 year guarantee RHS award of garden merit
2 litre pot £24.99
  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained neutral to slightly acid soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The branches of this low-growing yew are long and splaying, which makes it ideal for creating tall groundcover. Easy and undemanding, it's tolerant of dry shade, so it's particularly useful for underplanting established trees and shrubs where little else will grow.

  • Garden care: Pruning is not usually necessary, however any shoots that ruin the symmetry of the plant can be removed in autumn. Apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant (avoiding the immediate crown) in late winter.
  • Humans/Pets: TOXIC if eaten
