EVERGREEN CONIFER TREE
Family: Yew (Taxaceae)
Origin: From Europe to Asia Minor
Bloom time: March - April
Yews (Taxus) is a beautiful dioecious evergreen tree with smooth reddish brown bark which peels off in flakes in older plants and creates an interesting trunk surface. The needles are flattened, shiny, dark green and 3.5cm long. The blooms are diclinous and dioeciously divided. The tree bears decorative “red” berries (drupes) that taste sweetish. However, caution must be taken as the other parts of this plant are toxic.
English yew (Taxus baccata) is an evergreen conifer which is found in the great outdoors as a shrub or a multi-trunk multi-branch tree. The yew included in our product portfolio is grown from the very beginning as a tall trunk tree; i.e. as a single-trunk tree. It is unique thanks to its unusual habit and size (old plants) which make it a rare species here in the Czech Republic.
It is ideal for planting as an ACCENT WOODY PLANT.
