Hello, my name is Densiformus Yew. I am best known for my bright green foliage, which contrasts excellently against my dark evergreen needles and grows with a dense, wide-spreading habit. My foliage shifts to a deep forest green throughout the winter, giving your garden green detail all winter long. I am low maintenance, and can be pruned at any time depending on your style preferences. I am extremely adaptable. I will thrive in both full sun or full shade, in any type of soil or pH, and I am highly tolerant of urban pollution, so you can even plant me in an inner city environment! My requests for my perfect home are that I am never left in standing water, and I am given some extra space to spread out and grow.

  • Dense Yew is a slow-growing evergreen shrub with a compact and bushy growth habit, making it a great choice for hedges, borders, or as a foundation planting.
  • The dark green foliage is soft to the touch and provides year-round interest to your landscape, with small, inconspicuous flowers appearing in the spring.
  • This shrub is relatively low-maintenance and adaptable to a variety of soil types, making it a great option for beginner gardeners or those looking for a low-effort, yet beautiful addition to their yard.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water regularly to keep the soil moist, but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings
  • Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring before new growth appears. Trim back new growth to maintain the desired shape and size. Remove any branches that are crossing or rubbing against each other
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth appears

Planting Instructions

Planting a trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer.
