Spreading English Yew
Arching, prostrate branches gracefully swoop down at the tips, sporting refined, soft-needled, saturated forest-green foliage. An uber-urbane landscape shrub, this short, tight set conifer is garnished with young, bright green shoots plus decorative small red berries that birds adore, but people and pets must not ingest. Applauded for its shade tolerance, tailored year-round aspect and superb response to pruning, pest-free ‘Repandens’ works well as a long-lived low hedge, medium-sized ground cover, or as a richly colored evergreen foil in mixed borders, woodland gardens and foundation plantings. Good drainage and protection from dry winter winds guarantee plush glossy growth.
Size: 2' 0" – 4' 0" high x 6' 0" – 8' 0" wide.
