Yew Golden Taxus media ‘Tymon’
An interesting new variety of Golden Yew bred from Taxus ‘Hicksii’ and an improvement on ‘Semperaurea’. A compact spreading plant that is very hardy and disease resistant. The young growth has a bright golden colour, on close inspection each tiny narrow leaf has a perfect green central stripe. Like all yews this variety will grow in all soil types provided the drainage is good. Suitable for situations from full sun to dense shade, although it will be much greener in colour in the shade. This is an excellent plant for low hedging up to 1 metre but could be kept much smaller making an interesting alternative to Box hedging. Grows 10-20cm per year, trim in Autumn.
