    Taxus is possibly one of the most popular plants for creating topiary, and we have got this one off to a flying start, by clipping it into a 40cm ball of dense needle-like foliage. A slow growing evergreen conifer, it offers year-round colour and form, it's tolerant of dry shade, chalky or acidic soils, and urban pollution.

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