Dwarf Gold English Yew - Taxus baccata 'Goldener Zwerg'

Regular price $24.99

A relatively new miniature garden plant that has become a new favorite! Let me count the ways: 

  1. The foliage stays compact and tight. 

  2. It's smaller than the "normal" yews that we are "yews-to" seeing :o)

  3. It's a great shape for almost any miniature garden, it's a narrow column of green goodness.

  4. The foliage texture is completely different and it's a great contrast with any other conifer. 

  5. It changes color throughout the seasons. (The golden yellow foliage in spring lasts through the summer, then turns a rich, dark green for the colder months. In the winter, its "winter blush" is silver. The new growth in spring emerges a shade of red. Yummy.)

  6. It's tough. This new yew is hardy to -20F

  7. It's a slow-growing yew at a few inches per year. Light pruning will help keep the overall form in check - if necessary.

  8. Great for containers, Yews don't mind their roots cramped. 

  9. Growing details below... :o)
