English Yew - Topiary Pyramid - Taxus baccata 'Rising Star' - circa 60-70cm tall
Availability: In stock
English Yew is an excellent choice for topiary. It has dark-green, needle like foliage with a broadly conical, upright growing habit. Although it can grow extremely large, it is easily trimmed to keep small. Yew is one of the longest lived trees in Europe. If planted correctly, Yew can be sure to last for many, many years to come. This special Rising Star variety is a male form too, which means unlike some cultivars it won't produce red berries as others can, that often end up spoiling the look of your carefully quaffed topiary at certain times of the year.
A slow growing, evergreen conifer whose foliage provides an excellent backdrop to a herbaceous perennial or shrub border. Easy to grow and care for, it will thrive in full sun or shade and a wide range of soil types and conditions. Just be sure to keep it moist whilst it established and do not let it become too waterlogged.
These pyramidal forming strong plants are supplied as pictured in approx. 5 litre containers at heights up to around 60-70cm tall, they will continue to grow fill out and develop to form perfect cone shapes following the start and clip we have given them.
