Description

Fabulously fastigiate!

Think of Stonehenge® taxus as a thin, faster-growing 'Hicksii'. Perfect for hedging or foundation plantings where a narrow habit works best. This unique selection has been in our field trial for over five years and has never needed pruning, shearing, or shown signs of winter burn. It's narrow enough to be useful and interesting, dense enough to look good in a container, and fast enough to be profitable.
