With its upright, but broad growth habit and adaptability the Japanese Plum Yew is a huge hit in the gardening world.

How To Care

The Japanese Plum Yew is one of the easiest evergreen shrubs to grow. They are very hardy and rarely encounter issues with pests and disease. Once established these trees are drought tolerant.

Japanese Plum Yew shrubs do need to be watered well for the first few months in order to encourage a deep and healthy root system. Water deeply about 2 times per week. We recommend watering your trees as soon as they arrive even before you plant them. This will ensure that the roots are moist and ready for planting. Adding 2-3 inches of mulch is a great choice for newly planted Yews. This will help keep the soil moist during the crucial early period when the roots are acclimating to their new home. It also protects the roots from extreme temps. While yews will tolerate dry conditions, you will get the best growth out of your plant by watering them when the soil dries out

Japanese Plum Yews are recommended for the south where other yews generally prefer northern climates. This variety grows in zone 6 to 9 and is very heat tolerant.

This yew thrives in part sun to full shade! It can tolerate full sun in zones 6 and 7, but prefers at least some shade in zones 8 and 9. This evergreen is adaptable to any well-drained soil. Fertilize when planting and once yearly in spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer like the one we carry. Our fertilizer is safe to use at the time of planting. Avoid harsh chemical fertilizers that can burn the roots of your new tree. If you want to prune for shape or size control prune in early spring.

For a privacy hedge, space your new trees about 4 feet apart on center.

Landscape Ideas

The Japanese Plum Yew makes a great privacy screen. The dense foliage will keep out any sights you want to avoid and nosy neighbors from peering in. Plant about 4 feet apart on center where you would like to have privacy.

If you are seeking a nice evergreen specimen shrub or tree for the front of your home with moderate height,plant a Japanese Plum Yew on each side of a window. This creates a softening affect that breaks up the wall and adds character to your home. Under the windows you can plant your choice of shrubs. For tons of blooms and color, plant knockout roses in the back and drift roses in the front. The pink and red Knockouts will make the berries really pop in fall. If you prefer evergreens, try a mix of euonymus and junipers; this will offer year-round foliage, as well as rich texture and striking color contrast. Japanese Plum Yews are great anchors for the corners of your home as well. Plant just one or groups of three for even more impact.

Great Company!

Easy to find what I'm looking for on the website. I quickly got a confirmation that my order had shipped. It came 2 days later. The tree was beautiful, healthy and full, very well packed, with good planting directions. I ordered 10 more trees of a different variety, and got the same excellent service and results. Beautiful trees, very healthy. I don't see any reason to shop anywhere else!

So far so good

The plants came well packed, although I was a little surprised at how small they were. I’ve planted them and hope they thrive.
