Taxus x media 'Hicksii'


Thriving in zones 4-7 covering the majority of the US, the Hicks Yew has become a staple in landscaping for its conventional purposes for privacy screenings due to its columnar growth habit. It produces beautifully bright ornamental red berries which are actually its cones akin to that of a pine cone. If you’re looking to fill in an area around your yard to act as an accent or more suitably along a border, this will fulfill your needs delightfully giving your garden a contemporary feel with the atmosphere of a cottage style home. There is little to worry about when growing this evergreen hedge for it is tolerant to both high sun and shade, hardy to the cold and moderately warm summer months of the south, and after the roots have been established, lax routine watering is more than enough to provide you with the ease of growing this prominent easy-growing primary plant.
