Plant Profile: Upright Japanese Yew


Cone shaped shrub with fairly rapid growth rate. Can add between 10-12″ of new height each year. Easy to maintain as a hedge and can be used as a “specimen” tree in a garden.

Light Requirements:

Full sun to deep shade.


For a formal and more classy appearance, shear these hedges to remove about half the new growth in the early summer. For an informal appearance, do not use hedge trimmers and only remove individual long branches.
