Have both. You won't find me without yew
Aurea has been shaped as a cone.......wider than Standishii.
Standishii is more olive yellow, more tightly erect and more of a statement plant. Not sure growth rate is much different
Dove, for "presence" , as a pillar Standishii is superb. I have 3 here...2 were cuttings from original plant....and all are more than 20 years. They are kept to 9 to 10' tall and average 2 to 3 ' wide. Of course, both are easily and safely trimmed...even into old wood.....so won't exceed their alloted space
Aurea and Standishii are both delightful.....so, Aurea is softer in colour and form but Stan takes some beating.
