Plants become popular for a reason, whether it's because they are easy-care, beautiful, disease-resistant and simply look great anywhere! The Densiformis Yew (Taxus x media 'Densiformis') is popular for ALL of those reasons and then some. These shrubs even look fantastic when grown in their fluffy, tidy natural beauty! Leaving them to grow naturally allows you to see the tiny yellowish blossoms the pollinators love, and later emerging red fruit that encases the seeds your local songbirds adore. Soft, fluffy, new growth in early spring gives the shrub bright green needles that continue to mature to a rich, deep green. Dress them up as fancy pruned topiary - or dress them down in a rustic or contemporary yard. 

Growth Habits

Red berries flourish during the fall season adding a unique characteristic to the evergreen shrub. Growing 4 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide, these are wonderful soft-needled mid-sized shrubs. Some people prune these to shrubs and some allow them to grow naturally. 

Care

Full sun to part shade. One thing you will love about Densiformis is the high tolerance it has for different light exposures. You can plant the Yew in both full sun or full shade. Any well drained slightly acidic soil. 

Toxicity

Yew is a common evergreen shrub used in landscaping that is extremely poisonous to all species. This includes dogs, cats, horses, cattle, birds, and humans. According to Pet Poison Helpline, all parts of the plant are very poisonous, including the succulent red berries, as they contain taxines. Yews are susceptible to damage from hungry deer, especially in winter.
