Golden Irish Yew trees
Golden Irish Yew trees. This male tree has the same upright form as green Irish yew. It was first cultivated in 1880. Unless planted in a particularly moist fertile site it is slow to establish itself. This can however be an advantage in a confined area or where something relatively permanent is needed.
Trees can be planted near hard landscape features such as steps and statues without much danger of obscuring them for a very long time. In the south golden Irish yew benefits from some shade from hot sunshine and drying winds.
