Cephalotaxus var. drupacea

Cephalotaxus harringtonia var. drupacea

Plum Yew

Drupacea Plum Yew is a broad, vase-shaped evergreen with coarse, dark green needles, like an enormous Taxus. Slow growing but eventually large, Cephalotaxus is a perfect solution to screening needs in deer country. A dioecious species, the female plants, when pollinated produce walnut-sized, fleshy fruits.  Per Bruce Crawford of The Rutgers Gardens, drupacea is the most winter hardy of them all.
