|Botanical Pronunciation||TAKS-us MEE-dee-uh|
|Lore||All species of this genus are poisonous. One American species is the source of the cancer drug, Taxol. In England yew trees were restricted to church yards where they were not subject to livestock grazing, which caused many animal deaths in the past. Interestingly, deer may graze on them, unaffected. Birds are also attracted to the fruit, which they eat without consequence, as the flesh is not toxic to most, and the seed passes through intact.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Slowly reaches 10 to 12 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide.|
|Bloom Time||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Design Ideas||This yew is a traditional hedge plant, useful for its narrow, upright growth that take to shearing well. It also works well as a single, columnar accent in the landscape or on either side of a doorway.|
