Description

This is a relatively unusual but easy to grow conifer. It’s a member of the Yew family so it has dark glossy flat needles arranged in flat rows. The bark tends to be smooth and red. It produces yellow green seeds which can be used in cooking. While it has no spectacular qualities, it’s a very pleasant tree and could be used a specimen.
