Taxus General Information:

Yews are good accent and foundation plants. Excellent for mass plantings and very good as informal or formal hedges. Versatile evergreen shrubs.

Taxus Plant Care:

Yews will grow in full sun to full shade. Protect from strong winter winds. Fertilize lightly every spring with a balanced (10-10-10) fertilizer. Sprinkle the granules around the base of each plant before new growth emerges and water immediately so fertilizer will reach the root zone. Requires well-drained soil. Can be allowed to grow naturally or prune regularly to shape.
