Taxus baccata 'Fastigiata Aurea'
This is a handsome, slow-growing, evergreen conifer which forms an attractive shape naturally without the need of clipping or trimming. It is very tightly-branched, with a compact and upright growth habit. It forms a dense column of beautiful yellow-green foliage with bright golden edges, bathing the entire plant in beautiful golden light. Its conical shape makes it ideal for use as a specimen plant, or to add height and winter structure to a mixed border. It can also be sued as an attractive screen. It is often favoured by gardeners as it gives an injection of golden colour to the garden, and the red berries are attractive to birds and wildlife, but highly toxic to humans, and should not be ingested.
