|This yew is a male which in 15 to 20 years can produce a 9 feet by 12 feet compact, rounded, deep green foliaged form. It is easily maintained at any height, common in the midwest. In general, form is broadly pyramidal with a central leader. Similar to Taxus cuspidata, the Anglojap Yew has olive green branchlets which do not turn brown the second year. Bud scales are blunt and leaves are two-ranked. Thrives in sandier soil that is acid to neutral and well-drained. Does well in either sun or shade.
