Growing and Maintenance Tips:

A versatile evergreen tolerating heavy pruning, making it ideal for hedges, screens, foundation plantings and topiary landscapes.  It can also be left unpruned for a softer textured landscape. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying winter winds is recommended in an exposed location.

Additional Notes about Anderson's Spreading Yew:

Mature taxus specimens have the ability to regrow from old wood; older specimens in the garden can be rejuvenated.
