Low maintenance and versatile in sun or shade.

When used in bonsai, yews are suitable for most forms and require little ongoing maintenance. If you'd like to try your hand at carving techniques, this is a great species to start with.

In the Garden

Taxus chinensis is a very adaptable, medium sized tree that gives beautiful deep green foliage and can be used as a feature/shade tree or even grown as a hedge. This tree will grow in sun but prefers part shade and unlike other yews it can handle hot Australian summers as well as cold winters.

Propagation

A large, ornamental evergreen shrub or tree of the yew family, Taxus chinensis is widespread in China at elevations up to 900 meters. The tree is up to 14 m tall and wide and bushy when cultivated. The leaves are up to 4 cm long—broader than those of most other yews—and often end in a very small, sharp point. The underside of each leaf has two broad yellow stripes and is densely covered with minute projections.
