Dig into the details


The Fastigiata Plum Yew (Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Fastigiata') is an upright, slow-growing evergreen conifer renowned for its unique foliage and elegant columnar form. This adaptable and low-maintenance shrub is ideal for use as a specimen plant, hedge, or privacy screen.

The Overall Plant

Fastigiata Plum Yew is native to Japan and thrives in USDA hardiness zones 6-9. The plant typically reaches a height of 6-10 feet with a spread of 6-8 feet, although its growth rate is relatively slow at just 3-6 inches per year. This Plum Yew variety is well-suited to a range of soil types and light conditions, performing best in well-draining, acidic soil and partial to full shade.

The columnar, dense habit of the Fastigiata Plum Yew makes it a popular choice for adding structure and vertical interest to various garden settings, including woodland gardens, Asian-inspired landscapes, and mixed borders. Additionally, it is an excellent option for creating privacy screens or hedges, thanks to its dense branching and evergreen foliage.

The Foliage

One of the primary attractions of the Fastigiata Plum Yew is its distinctive foliage. The dark green, needle-like leaves are arranged in a unique, V-shaped pattern along the stems, giving the plant a feathery, textured appearance. The evergreen foliage retains its color year-round, providing consistent visual interest and making it an excellent choice for adding texture and contrast to the landscape.

The Fastigiata Plum Yew is not only attractive but also deer-resistant, making it a practical option for gardens where deer browsing is a concern. Its foliage is also relatively resistant to diseases and pests, contributing to its low-maintenance appeal.
