This female variety of Yew tree has an upright, columnar habit and dark green foliage with bright red berries in autumn. This compact cultivar is faster growing than the commonly seen English Yew and makes an excellent evergreen hedge. Taxus x media 'Hicksii' is equally spectacular when allowed to grow unpruned, ultimately forming a majestic, upright conifer with dense foliage. Like all Yews, it may be kept to much smaller proportions with regular pruning. Yew is particularly adaptable and will thrive in almost any position from full sun to deep shade, on acid or chalky soils. Height: 8m (25'). Spread: 3m (10').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
