Fast growing, mound-shaped. Bright green foliage, bronzed in winter. Probably the most popular spreading yew for New England. Well adapted to the New England climate. An excellent choice for hedging. Tolerant of shade and drought tolerant once established. Highly susceptible to deer damage. The Taxus x media cultivars are the results of crossing Japanese Yew (T. cuspidata) with English Yew (T. Baccata).
