I bought a number of conifers from Bressimgham at the time ....conifers were a big item then for them......and many of them seem not readily available now including a couple of junipers.

No, no no Salino. ,I know my plants.  Know what I have. Know it's name.  Tax us "Coppershine" because it is so distinctive. Well aware of other plants with suffix Coppershine.  Orange new growths that I've not seen elsewhere.  It is not esp slow growing or have any issues so very surprised not to see it anywhere.  Anyway, I'm determined to source it or identify it.  Expect an apology Salino .  I did post a picture of it while back 

hey I know the difference between taxus and coprosma.......!

Hiya Jaybee

is it not available right now.  Had it for 20 years I guess.  Think I got it from Bressimgham Gardens.  I will check it out.  it is quite a spectacular variety.  It has featured in pictures I've posted in the past on the forum.  

My Standishii ...I have 4 of them, 3 were cuttings from the original purchase.......are all 7 or 8' high and some 3' across.  Strong broad pillars that should make good hedge.  Other varieties variety I've known as taxus fastigiata Aurea is cheaper and wider pillar should make that hedge more economical.

i also grow a dark green almost black variety.  A combo of yellow and green may be worth considering..?

I will take a look online for coppershine

Enough is enough.

Enough is enough.

I grow standishii and Aurea as upright varieties and a couple of mound forming yellows including Coppershine.

the mound formers are pretty quick now...I trim them back annually removing several inches each time.  They are about 3' high and 4 or 5' across.  Coppershine is excellent.  Leaves turn green and white in winter, bright copper/orange in spring (beautifully eye catching)  and yellow in summer.  all will form a hedge.  The mound formers will occupy a wider space but take longer to add height of course....less plants needed 

Yews are virtually indestructible, disease resistant and recover from the harshest of pruning.
