Pruning: The Upright Japanese Plum Yew benefits from occasional light pruning in late winter to early spring, primarily to maintain its upright shape and promote denser growth.

Fertilization: A balanced, slow-release fertilizer applied in the spring enhances its growth and supports its overall health.

Winter Protection: In harsher climates, consider providing protection using mulch around the base, and if extreme cold is forecasted, wrapping the plant may be beneficial.


Choose a location with good drainage and suitable shade coverage. Dig a hole that's twice the width of the plant's root ball and equally deep. Position the Upright Japanese Plum Yew in the hole, ensuring the root ball top aligns with the ground level. Backfill with a mix of native soil and organic compost, pressing gently to remove air pockets. Water deeply after planting. Applying mulch around its base will help retain soil moisture and suppress weed growth, fortifying the plant's health and aesthetics.

For the Upright Japanese Plum Yew to truly flourish, consistent and deep watering is essential, especially during its establishment phase and dry spells. It thrives in partial to full shade, showcasing its rich green foliage best when shielded from intense afternoon sun.
