Growth Facts

The Story

In England, yew was restricted only to churchyards where livestock wouldn't be found grazing because it is toxic to the animals. Shakespeare was also familiar with the toxic qualities of yew when he had Macbeth concoct a poisonous brew which included, "slips of yew, silvered in the moon's eclipse."

The Details

Dense Spreading Yew does wonderfully in part shade, and can be easily grown under a tree or combines well with more upright growers in the mixed border.

How to Grow

These Yew tolerate shade well and also grow easily in well-drained soil with average moisture. Water your Dense Spreading Yew on a weekly basis or twice a week in extreme heat. You can prune or shear annually in early spring before new growth appears.
