The golden-yellow columnar yew - a year-round greenery for your garden

If you want to add a little colour to your garden all year round, the golden-yellow columnar yew is the right choice. Taxus baccata David delights all year round with its beautiful yellow-green needle colouring and looks its best both in a solitary position and in small groups in the garden border. This narrow columnar yew requires little care and is also suitable if the bed to be planted is not very wide.

Appearance and characteristics of the columnar yew


The golden-yellow columnar yew has a very upright and extremely narrow growth in column form. The maximum height of the plant is two metres, it grows quite slowly by about 10 - 15 cm a year. The needles of the columnar yew are smooth and have an attractive sheen. The needle shoots in the spring months are bright and lemon-yellow in colour, which then turns to a golden-yellow border around the needles in the course of the summer. This evergreen yew as a column is a joy to have in the garden all year round and is always a colourful focal point in the border. The hedge plant produces inconspicuous flowers and the fruit appears in the form of red, non-edible berries.

Style and combination possibilities


The golden-yellow David's columnar yew can embellish the garden in different ways. As a classic hedge plant, it serves both as an outer border or boundary for beds and as a screen when it has reached the appropriate height of growth. Several specimens of the columnar yew planted in a small group show off its beautiful slender growth particularly well. But this narrow columnar yew also has a very attractive effect as a single plant and can be planted not only directly in the garden bed but also in suitable containers or tubs. A yew also looks convincing as a column in the rock garden if it is used as a solitary.

The columnar yew can be integrated into classic and elegant garden styles. Combinations with Japanese plants such as Japanese blood grass or Japanese lavender heather are particularly attractive, both of which also add beautiful splashes of colour to the garden landscape.

Buy, plant and care for columnar yew David


Normal soil without waterlogging should be provided in your garden if you want to buy and plant the columnar yew. The golden-yellow columnar yew feels at home in shade, partial shade and sun and can be planted all year round. For a hedge planting with the David yew as a column, five plants are needed per running metre. The narrow columnar yew is not high-maintenance, but on the contrary extremely robust and undemanding. A slight annual pruning is only necessary for the columnar yew David if required.

The plants are grown in pots, so you can use them all year round. You need about 5 plants for 1 metre of hedge.
