Becher Eibe Groenland - the all-rounder among hedge plants
The Becher Eibe Groenland is a real all-rounder. Very few garden plants are so undemanding and yet can be used in so many different ways.
No matter in which form you prefer the yew Groenland, it always cuts a good figure. As a hedge plant, its dense and strong growth provides optimal privacy and wind protection. As the so-called Taxus Media Groenland does not shed its needles even in winter, your hedge will remain evergreen even on dreary winter days.
A yew hedge is a real eye-catcher, as the Becher Eibe Groenland has an exceptionally beautiful needle coat that shines in a rich dark green. This wonderful appearance makes it suitable not only as a yew hedge, but also as a specimen plant. Here it sets hardly any limits to horticultural creativity, as it can be cut into almost any shape. Whether as a cube, sphere or spiral - the Taxus Media Groenland retains its strongly branched and upright growth in any shape.
Contrasting colours of the Taxus hedge
When the fruit ripens in February, small red berries shimmer between the lush green. However, as the Groenland yew bears its fruit at the beginning of the year, it does not steal the show from the later flowering plants. On the contrary, with its shimmering dark green, it provides a wonderful backdrop for a wide range of colours. The combination with richly flowering rhododendrons is particularly impressive, but the lighter green of other conifers also makes a beautiful contrast.
Yew hedge satisfied with little
When you buy a yew, you can be sure that the yew hedge or a specimen yew will not give you a lot of work. The Becher Yew Groenland requires little water and only needs to be pruned once a year. The Taxus Media Groenland is so undemanding that you can even plant it in a pot. The yew Groenland can also reach a very old age - the oldest yew found is over a thousand years old - so you will enjoy your yew hedge for a long time.
Suitable for almost every garden
But for what kind of garden is the yew Groenland best suited? It is not so easy to give a definite answer here, because its pruning variability means that it fits in just as well in modern and symmetrical gardens as it does in informal gardens, depending on the shape of the cut. For example, you can buy a yew for cottage gardens, nature gardens, woodland gardens or formal gardens. And even for the cemetery, the Becher Eibe Groenland is suitable as grave planting.
You need about 5 plants for 1 metre of hedge. The plants are grown in pots, so you can use these plants all year round.
