More Details

Hicks Yew, scientifically known as Taxus x media 'Hicksii', is a versatile and elegant evergreen shrub that serves as a strong architectural element in various garden designs. With its narrow, columnar shape and lush, dark green foliage, this plant offers year-round beauty and privacy. Exceptionally hardy and adaptable, Hicks Yew is an excellent choice for gardeners looking to create living screens, hedges, or simply add a touch of evergreen sophistication to their outdoor spaces.

Growth rate: Slow to moderate growth rate; mature height of 10 to 12 feet and width of 3 to 4 feet.

Pruning: Hicks Yew tolerates heavy pruning well. Pruning can be done in late winter to early spring before new growth begins. This will help maintain its shape and remove any dead or unhealthy growth.

Fertilization: A general-purpose, slow-release fertilizer applied in early spring can benefit this plant, enhancing its lush, dark green foliage.

Winter Protection: While cold-hardy, Hicks Yew may benefit from a windbreak in particularly exposed locations. Mulching around the base can also provide added winter protection.


Choose a location with well-drained soil and sufficient sunlight. Dig a hole that is twice the width of the root ball and of similar depth. Remove the Hicks Yew from its container and gently loosen the root ball before placing it in the hole. Fill the hole with soil, tamping down as you go to avoid air pockets. Water the plant thoroughly after planting. If desired, apply a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch around the base to help conserve moisture and regulate soil temperature.

Hicks Yew does well in full sun to partial shade and requires consistent watering, particularly during its first year. Once established, it is somewhat drought-tolerant but will appreciate occasional deep watering during dry spells.
