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.
