Yew - Taunton Spreading
Taunton Spreading Yew, taxus x media 'Tauntoni', is a spreading evergreen that has short dark green needles and is very hardy. Taunton has a low graceful and lovely form, tolerant of summer heat, and excellent resistance to winter burn.
It grows well in both sun or shade and is very popular as an accent, specimen, or foundation plant. It grows 3-4 tall and 4-6 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.
