    Needle-like, dark green leaves on horizontal branches and fleshy, cup-shaped, bright-red autumn fruits on female plants. The dark green foliage of this slow-growing, evergreen conifer provides an excellent background for shrub and herbaceous borders. Broadly conical in shape, it's tolerant to dry shade, chalky and acid soils, and urban pollution. Yew also makes a fabulous, formal hedge.

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