Dense Spreader Yew

Tolerates shade

Dense Spreader Yew

Tolerates shade

  • Soft, evergreen foliage
  • Grows 3-4 ft. tall with spreading habit
  • Ideal as hedge or foundation plant
Dormant 12-18"
Product Description
This low-growing, spreading shrub tolerates shade better than many other evergreens, making it a good choice for foundation plantings. A cross between the English and Japanese yews, Dense Spreader Yew combines the ornamental qualities of the English yew with the winter hardiness of the Japanese yew. Growing 3-4 ft. tall, with a 5-6 ft. spread, Dense Spreader Yew has soft, dark green needles that provide year-round color. It accepts shearing and pruning well, making it a good choice for growing as a hedge. While it grows best in partial shade to sun, it tolerates shade. However, it must have well-drained soil. Zones 4-7
