Definition Of yew
a coniferous tree that has red berrylike fruits, and most parts of which are highly poisonous. Yews are linked with folklore and superstition and can live to a great age; the timber is used in cabinetmaking and (formerly) to make longbows.
Species with random branching, such as arborvitae, juniper, yew , and false cypress, have limbs that occur all along the trunk.
Example Of yew
A simple circle of juvenile yews will eventually knit together to enclose a calming circle of pure green.
A total of 23 mature trees - including yew , oak and fir - have been destroyed.
Although box and yews can be clipped into formal shapes, most shade plants appear at home in that naturalistic setting.
Clipped yew , beech and hornbeam are lovely.
For background planting, especially if you have plenty of space, grow yews , hawthorn, holly, elder and Viburnum opulus, the Guelder rose.
