Yew - Hicks

A Hedge For All Seasons

Yew - Hicks, Taxus x media 'Hicksii', is one of the most popular upright columnar yews. It is a dense, narrow, columnar, evergreen shrub with ascending branching with lustrous dark green needles above and lighter green below.

It typically matures to a height of 18' to 20' with a spread of 6' to 10' wide after 20 years; very narrow when young and widening with age.

Yews are classified as conifers, but female plants (yews are dioecious) produce red, fleshy, single-seeded fruit instead of cones.

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils of neutral pH in full sun to part shade.

Hicks Yew tolerates a wide range of soils as long as drainage is good.

Also tolerant of full shade and considerable pruning, but intolerant of temperature extremes.

Use as a specimen, screen, hedge or foundation plant.

* Columnar Yew
* Full Sun to Full Shade

Sun and shade Review by Mel
The Hicks yew is one of the few plants I have found that can form a good looking hedge when part of the hedge is covered with shade. I just have to prune the part that is in the sun more often than the part that is in the shade,
Hicks Yew Review by Holly Helmstetter
I bought 2 Hicks Yews from another source, and I love them! I bought them when I first bought my house, so I could buy smaller plants for less. The Hicks Yew that's more in sunshine has grown much faster than the one in shade, but that could be a soil difference. I got them for a mixed-evergreen area, for privacy. These are not for instant privacy unless you buy mature ones. A definite plus with these, over arborvitae and many other privacy evergreens is that even though I live only about 25 miles south of the Canadian border (in NY state) and our winters can be harsh, the Hicks Yews have never had any windburn or other winter damage. I meant to buy more of these this year but the stores are all out so I'm buying them online.
