Japanese Plum Yew – ‘fastigiata’
The Japanese Plum Yew, Cephalotaxus ‘fastigiata’ variety is known for its distinctive, upright, rounded, columnar form. As such, it is an extremely versatile plant.
‘Fastigiata’ is useful as an artful accent plant, but can be trained into a fine low formal hedge. The needle like leaves of this variety are the darkest black-green foliage color that we grow.
I like to feature ‘Fastigiata’ as a thriller plant specialty mixed container gardens. Because of its slow growth rate, you can feature it long term in your landscape.
