Taxus Everlow H8 !
Everlow Yew is a hybrid of T. baccata and T. cuspidata which makes it sufficiently winter hardy for the upper Midwest. Its claim to fame is short stature and a slow growth rate. Yews are much sought after as so versatile in the landscape since they will grow in full sun-full shade. Being evergreen, they provide year-round interest. Most yew selections just grow too big for foundation plantings so must be trimmed for height control. This low growing cultivar eliminates any need for shearing.
