Taxus baccata 'Fastigiata' is a striking, upright, dark green yew makes a good shape without any clipping or trimming. Plants of this cultivar are all female, so if a male yew of any kind is nearby, they produce red berries which add extra interest late in the season. The berries are, however, poisonous if eaten. This conifer makes a good specimen plant for a border, and a double row provides a good formal avenue planted either side of a path, but ultimate height is up to 12m tall. To propagate, take cuttings in late summer and early autumn. Plants are quite tough and will grow in any well-drained soil. (The plant pictured is a very young specimen!)
