Yew, or Taxus baccata, is a large evergreen shrub with dense, linear, leaves. The flowers are insignificant, but conspicuous, fleshy red berries appear on female plants in autumn and provide food for birds. Traditionally, yew was planted in churchyards to protect livestock from the poisonous seed within these berries, and to maintain a supply of the dense wood that was prized for making archers' bows.

Clipped yew looks superb against a wall or along a terrace. Keep in a pot or plant directly in the ground. Particularly useful for adding structure to an informal garden or parterre, and for creating winter interest. They also add depth to a mixed topiary display.


Choose from two sizes:

  • Pot size: 6L
  • Pot size: 13L

Many other sizes and clipped shapes are available, including yew hedging plants. Please note, these Clipped Globes are only available for local delivery or in-store collection. Do give us a call on 01993 823117 before visiting to check we have it in stock for you.
