Here's a great yew for you! Taxus cuspidata 'Low Boy' is a long term favorite in our gardens, having performed superbly for over 15 years. In that time, it's formed a 15" tall x 5' wide evergreen mass in part sun to light shade. The dark green leaves are topped in spring with a new flush of bright golden foliage for an exquisite contrast. The trail to find the origin of Taxus 'Low Boy' runs cold since our plant was acquired from defunct Roslyn Nursery of New York, so it could be a plant that arose from one of the conifer collectors in that region.
