Yew makes an excellent evergreen hedge, and is perfect for clipping or topiary. It is a long-lived conifer with dark green needle-like foliage, reddish bark and red berries, and is 1 of only 2 conifers native to Ireland (the other being Scots' pine). It can grow to be a magnificent tree, or be clipped into any shape or size. The berries and foliage are poisonous. Tolerant of many conditions, including light shade and dry soil (once established). For a hedge, plant 2-3 plants per metre and keep weeded at the base whilst establishing. Sturdy Irish-grown plants 50-60cms tall in a 5L container. Plants displayed on this website are not necessarily in stock in each of our shops
