The Fritz Huber Japanese Yew (Taxus cuspidata 'Fritz Huber') is a compact, slow-growing evergreen shrub known for its elegant appearance and attractive, dark green foliage. It is an excellent choice for foundation plantings, hedges, or as a specimen plant in a small garden.
The Fritz Huber Japanese Yew is a cultivar of the Taxus cuspidata species and is native to Japan, Korea, and northeastern China. This dwarf variety typically reaches 3 to 4 feet in height and 4 to 5 feet in width, with a dense, rounded growth habit. The shrub thrives in USDA hardiness zones 6-9, preferring well-draining, moist, acidic soil and partial to full shade.
The Fritz Huber Japanese Yew is a low-maintenance shrub that tolerates pruning well, making it an ideal choice for formal hedges, topiary, or container gardening.
One of the standout features of the Fritz Huber Japanese Yew is its attractive, needle-like foliage. The evergreen leaves are glossy, dark green, and arranged in a spiraling pattern along the branches, creating a dense, lush appearance. The foliage provides year-round interest in the garden, and the shrub's compact size and slow growth make it an ideal choice for small spaces.
The Fritz Huber Japanese Yew is dioecious, meaning that individual plants are either male or female. Female plants produce small, inconspicuous flowers in spring, which are followed by striking, red, berry-like fruit called arils. These arils contain a single, toxic seed, but the fleshy outer layer is edible and can be used to make jams or jellies.
The fruit ripens in late summer to early fall and is attractive to birds and other wildlife. However, it is essential to be aware of the toxicity of the seeds to humans and pets, and caution should be exercised when planting the Fritz Huber Japanese Yew in areas frequented by children or pets.
