Okay, picture a normal yew that has been stepped on by an elephant...got the picture? Cephalotaxus 'Duke Gardens' is a remarkable plant, first discovered in Duke Gardens, NC in 1958, where it occurred as a branch mutation on a plant of Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Fastigiata'. What resulted is a 30" tall x 60" wide shrub that is the perfect yew substitute in the heat of the South, and the perfect deer-resistant yew substitute for gardeners in the North. With some minor damage, Cephalotaxus 'Duke Gardens' has survived -24 degrees F at Bernheim Arboretum in KY. The soft, black-green foliage makes a fascinating textural plant that thrives in even the shadiest of woodland gardens.
