Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Korean Gold' (Large Plant)

Plum Yew, Cowtail pine

Hardy Tree

This slow growing conifer has a Yew-like appearance, with long gold-tipped needles that mature to green in winter. Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Korean Gold' is a columnar variety with a compact narrow growth habit that forms a golden exclamation mark in the garden! Commonly known as Plum Yew it enjoys a cool, moist position and makes a useful specimen plant for shaded woodland areas. It also responds well to hard pruning making it suitable as an evergreen hedging plant. Over time it makes a majestic specimen, but will require patience, growing to just half its mature size in around 15 years. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2m (6').

Grow Plum Yew trees in fertile, well drained soil in partial shade. Cephalotaxus requires a cool, moist position with shelter from cold, drying winds.
Feed and water Plum Yew plants regularly after planting. Once established they will require little maintenance if grown as a free standing specimen tree. When grown as a hedge, Cephalotaxus should be pruned in early summer. Plants will tolerate hard pruning well.
