CYAN Horticulture added this to 7 Evergreen Wonders of the Plant World
Upright Yew(Taxus x media)Compared with broadleaf evergreens, coniferous evergreens are, in general, that much hardier. In the warmer reaches of North America as well as on most of its West Coast well into Canada, broadleaf evergreens abound. In colder reaches, however, the selection is much thinner — boxwood, euonymus, hollies and leucothoes are some of the tougher contenders. Yet there is more to conifers than blue spruces and hedging cedars. An all-time favorite is yew, upright (Taxus x media, shown here) or creeping. Its fine, dark green foliage has nothing to envy of any exotics.USDA zones: 4 to 8Water requirement: Moist but well-drained soilLight requirement: Full to partial sunMature size: VariableSeasonal interest: Year-roundWhen to plant: Spring to fall
