    Ornamental Features

    Dwarf Bright Gold Yew has attractive gold-variegated green foliage which emerges yellow in spring. The ferny leaves are highly ornamental and remain green throughout the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Dwarf Bright Gold Yew is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

    This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and can be pruned at anytime. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Dwarf Bright Gold Yew is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Accent
    • Mass Planting
    • Hedges/Screening
    • General Garden Use
    • Topiary

    Planting & Growing

    Dwarf Bright Gold Yew will grow to be about 6 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more.

    This shrub does best in partial shade to shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America, and parts of it are known to be toxic to humans and animals, so care should be exercised in planting it around children and pets.
