Taxus x media 'SMNTHDC'

Yew - Stonehenge®

Stonehenge® Yew is a thin, faster-growing than a traditional yew. Perfect for hedging or foundation plantings where a narrow habit works best. This unique selection has been in our field trial for over five years and has never needed pruning, shearing, or shown signs of winter burn. It's narrow enough to be useful and interesting, dense enough to look good in a container, and fast growing.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plantand flourish!
