The Prostrata Japanese Plum Yew (Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Prostrata') is a low-growing, shade-loving evergreen shrub that adds texture and interest to gardens and landscapes. Its attractive foliage, slow growth rate, and adaptability to various conditions make it a popular choice for gardeners looking for a versatile and low-maintenance plant.
The Prostrata Japanese Plum Yew is a dense, spreading evergreen shrub that typically grows to a height of 2 to 3 feet and can spread 3 to 4 feet wide. It is well-suited for USDA hardiness zones 6 to 9 and thrives in partial to full shade, making it an ideal choice for gardens with limited sunlight. The plant prefers moist, well-draining soil but can tolerate a variety of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. Its slow growth rate and compact size make it an excellent choice for groundcover, foundation plantings, or as an accent in mixed borders and shade gardens.
The primary feature of the Prostrata Japanese Plum Yew is its attractive, needle-like foliage. The dark green, glossy leaves are arranged in a whorled, linear pattern along the branches, creating a dense, lush appearance. The evergreen nature of this plant ensures year-round color and interest in the garden, even during the colder months when other plants have lost their leaves.
In addition to its visual appeal, the foliage of the Prostrata Japanese Plum Yew is deer-resistant, making it an excellent choice for gardens in areas where deer are prevalent. Its adaptability to various growing conditions and low-maintenance requirements make it a popular choice for gardeners looking to add a hardy and attractive evergreen to their landscape.
