Southern gardeners for years have dreamed of growing the common yew in their landscapes. Unfortunately, yews don’t like our hot, humid summertime weather. Here is a great alternative. If you are looking for an evergreen shrub with conifer-like foliage then look no further. The Japanese plum yew is the plant for you.

Plum yews make fine specimen plants and can also be used in groupings or in a mass planting or as a ground cover. Tolerant of a wide range of soils and require very little maintenance. Locate in shade or partial shade, although well-established plants will grow successfully in full sun. Very slow growing.

‘Prostrata’ is a low-growing plum yew that reaches 2 to 3 feet tall and 3 feet in width. Deer resistant.
