Similar to Stonehenge® Taxus, but even skinnier. There's no pruning, shearing, and little to no spacing needed for this dense, dark green columnar yew. We've been watching this plant for over eight years, and it holds its dark color all year long and has never winter burned. It's useful as a super-skinny, space-saving hedge or as a specimen plant.
