Regular price $15.00 Sale

Taxus media 'Hicksii'

The long, upright-growing branches with dense, glossy, dark green foliage naturally form a narrow, columnar habit that works well as a foundation plant, or placed in pairs at entries or doorways. Excellent choice to add height to landscaped gardens.

 Can tolerate both sunny and shady conditions.
