Majestic Yew Growing and Maintenance Tips

A versatile evergreen tolerating heavy pruning, making it ideal for hedges, screens, foundation plantings and topiary landscapes. It can also be left unpruned for a softer textured landscape. A very columnar-growing cultivar, growing slower than 'Hicksii', making it a good vertical accent. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying, winter winds is recommended in exposed locations.
