Comments: As with all of the taxus species this one is tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions from rather dry to moist, but cannot tolerate wet soils. For best results provide a fertile, well drained soil. This selection is known for its broad spreading form that is somewhat like a pfitzer juniper. Members of this genus are highly popular in the upper part of the country. Most cannot tolerate the hot humid conditions of the Lower South. Portions of the plant are poisonous.
