This is a striking, bolt-upright, slow-growing golden yew which naturally 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. It is one of the best golden forms, especially as it will take many years to outgrow its position. To propagate, take cuttings in late summer and early autumn. Plants are quite tough and will grow in any well-drained soil. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
