Taxus baccata Fastigiata is a fastigiate or upright, slow-growing conifer with attractive, yellow tinted, evergreen foliage. Taxus baccata fastigiata has a fairly narrow width and columnar shape, making it ideal to use as sentries outside front doors and along pathways or to punctuate a border. This striking conifer is easy to maintain and stray stems can be trimmed back to maintain the symmetrical appearance. The foliage is highly toxic so take care around animals.
Irish Yew is expected to reach a height and spread of 5 x 4 meters in 20 years, and will grow well in any situation, tolerating all soils, other than damp, badly drained conditions.
