    Slowly forming a bushy mound, which could be clipped to form a very neat dome, this adaptable and easy to grow evergreen offers year round interest. When grown in full sun, the new foliage emerges in a bright yellow-green flush, but as the season progresses, the colour becomes greener. Tough and undemanding, this low growing golden yew is ideal for a low-maintenance garden.

  • Garden care: Trim or renovate in late summer or early autumn.
  • CAUTION toxic if eaten
