Yew Fastigiata Aurea - majestic and elegant
Like all yew species, the yew Fastigiata Aurea is an evergreen conifer and, with its light green to yellow-green needles, stands out from most other trees and shrubs in the garden all year round.
Yew - Striking growth and bright needles
The slender yew owes its name to its upright and columnar growth. The sapling yew Fastigiata Aurea was created by crossing the European and Japanese yew trees. With a growth rate of only 10 to 15 cm per year, the yellow yew grows very slowly. It therefore takes quite a while before the yew rises like a column from the surrounding planting. Over the years, however, it can reach a stately height of 3 to 5 m.
The most striking and attractive features of the elegant yellow yew are its growth habit and the bright, shiny needles. This yew looks like a column in the midst of the surrounding planting and also stands out visually from it due to its leaf colouring.
The leaves, however, are rather inconspicuous and hardly noticeable. In late summer and into autumn, the narrow yew bears many small red-coloured berries. Like all other parts of the plant, the berries are not suitable for consumption.
Robust and undemanding yew
The yew Fastigiata Aurea is a very robust and undemanding tree that does not require extensive care. The yellow yew is happy with normal garden soil. It does not make any great demands when it comes to the right location. The yellow yew thrives equally well in sun, semi-shade or shade.
The care of the yew is very simple. Only during long dry periods and after planting the young yew should you water the conifer well so that the soft needles are not damaged. The yew does not need pruning or shaping. Only dead or stubborn branches should be removed from time to time.
The Fastigiata Aurea - ideal as a specimen or hedge
The yew's distinctive growth like a column makes it an ideal tree in a solitary position. However, if you buy a yew, you can also use it optimally as a foliage plant. The sapling Fastigiata Aurea also looks majestic and impressive in small group plantings.
The slender säuleneibe is an excellent hedge plant and provides optimal privacy. For a hedge you need about 5 plants per metre. When you buy a yew, however, you should bear in mind that the tree grows slowly. It will therefore take a little time before the yew provides the desired privacy screen. Yew trees are very decorative as a symmetrical pair along paths or house entrances.
With its striking and elegant appearance, the yellow yew is very suitable for Mediterranean gardens, but also for any formal home garden. The sapling Fastigiata Aurea forms a beautiful contrast with the Chinese flowering dogwood or as a towering column in the midst of colourful perennials such as lavender or pinks
The plants are grown in pots, therefore you can use these plants all year round.
