The Upright Japanese Plum Yew is a bold, architectural evergreen, with strong upright branches and a vertical form, growing to 6 feet tall and 18 inches wide, and ultimately passing 10 feet and growing wider. It is perfect as an accent plant or a bold specimen, and it can be used to create a hedge in shady areas. The dark-green foliage looks like long yew leaves, and they stay fresh and green all year round. It is very tolerant and heat and humidity, and fully hardy even in zone 5.

  • Bold upright form for specimens, accents and hedges
  • Much more heat and humidity tolerant than English yew
  • Grows well even in full shade
  • Hardy throughout zone 5
  • Attractive and easy to grow

Partial or complete shade are perfect for the Upright Japanese Plum Yew. It will grow in full sun in zones 5 and 6. The ideal soil is moist and well-drained, but this plant is easy to grow in most soils, and it is moderately drought resistant once it is established. It has no pests or diseases, and deer leave it completely alone. It can be trimmed, or left to grow in its natural form, as you choose.
