The best gardens and landscapes include plants and shrubs that offer color and texture throughout the year. That's one reason yews, with their evergreen foliage and low maintenance, are favorites. The Dark Green Spreader Yew is an easy-to-grow shrub with dense, soft needles--and it's easy to prune and shape. Plus, it grows just 3-4 ft. tall with a 4-5 ft. spread, making it a top choice for a foundation planting or growing in a rock garden. Like other yews, the Dark Green Spreader Yew is hardy and adaptable to several soil types. It performs best when planted in full sun to partial shade. Zones 4-7. Taxus x media 'Dark Green Spreader'
