This is a shrub with character. The soft green foliage forms in a pyramid shape, which makes an exciting specimen shrub in a contemporary garden. It doesn't require much pruning to get that nice silhouette, but you can emphasize the shape with sheering if you like. This Pyramidal Yew's lush foliage can serve as a windbreak or privacy, and there's plenty of room for some roosting birds in its branches. Want to know the best thing about an evergreen shrub with a unique shape instead of color? The neutral green makes a nice backdrop while all of your bold, colorful flowers take centerstage in spring and summer. Then in winter, when the flowers have faded, the unusual shape keeps your garden attractive. Taxus x media 'Dark Green Pyramidalis'
