An impressive pom pon topiary grown from Taxus x Media ‘Hicksii’- conifer with main horizontal branches and secondary branches short and weeping. If left to grow freely and if it has enough space it will become a broadly conical tree with spreading, horizontal branches. Male cones are yellow in spring, followed by beautiful red fruit. Grows well in fertile, well drained soil including chalky and acid soil.
Withstands being covered by old trees. Used a lot for hedges because it tolerates severe, repeated pruning and it is also for this reason that this plant is used for creating geometric shapes and Giant Garden Bonsai. No regular pruning is required but trimming and shaping throughout the spring and summer months is advisable. The hardy rating is (H7) making this plant perfect all year throughout the UK. Fruit can grow in the Autumn time but it is advisable not to eat anything due to high levels of toxicity associated with this plant.
