Hill's Yew Taxus x media 'Hillii'

A versatile evergreen tolerating heavy pruning, making it ideal for hedges, foundation plantings and topiary landscapes. It can also be left unpruned for a softer textured landscape. A very columnar-growing cultivar, growing slower than 'Hicksii', making it a good vertical accent for the smaller garden. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying, winter winds is recommended in exposed locations.

  • Care Instructions

    This shrub performs well in both full sun and full shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid, and parts of it are known to be toxic to humans and animals, so care should be exercised in planting it around children and pets.
