Dark Green Yew, taxus x media 'Dark Green', is an excellent evergreen with beautiful dark green foliage for the shade garden or shady side of the home. It is has a spreading compact habit, and its forest-green foliage does not burn in winter. It exhibits a small wide spreading form, with soft textures, and rich green short needles that are easily pruned into various shapes. This yew can be used as a low hedge or specimen plant and requires good drainage and prefers a shady location with loamy soil. It grows 3-5 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide. Yews are widely used landscape plants because of their rich, dark green evergreen foliage and versatility. They are maintainable at various heights and spreads. Remove 1/2 to 3/4 of the new growth each year with hand pruners; you can control the size and maintain a healthier shrub with a more natural form.
