Taxus x media 'Hicksii'

Overall Description

Lustrous, dark green needles above, and lighter green beneath. Needles approximately 1 inch long. Has a very neat, columnar upright growth habit - reaching heights of up to 20 ft when mature. Holds good dark green color all through winter. Can take full sun in moderate climates, but would prefer part shade to avoid any foliage burn from excessive heat/sun exposure. Can be used as a screen/border, but most commonly used in landscapes as single or group plantings - many times against the fronts & sides of buildings. Makes a good landscape tree with good dark green color, especially in shadier locations.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
