Taxus x media 'Densiformis'
A very densely growing shrub form of Yew - many times twice as wide as it is tall. Nice deep green needles, with new growth emerging as a brighter green and eventually maturing to deep green. Excellent choice for use as formal hedge, takes very well to pruning / trimming. Will do well in full sun, but will really perform well if given just a bit of shade as a break from high summer heat. Likes well drained soil that is somewhat moist and slightly on the acidic side. Moderate growth rate.
