Dark Green Pyramidal Yew Hedge
Easy, Yet Exciting
Hedges don't have to be boring--you could do a line of Dark Green Pyramidal Yews! The soft, dark green foliage grows in this unusual pyramid shape, almost like you've gone for a topiary look, but without the constant sheering. If you want to really emphasize the shape, however, it responds well to pruning too. It's a strong choice for hedging, its easy and lasts year-round, with dense foliage to serve as a windbreak or give your garden some privacy from nosey neighbors. The green is a nice, neutral tone that won't overwhelm, so you can plant a long line of this yew for structure. Whatever flowers take your fancy in the coming years, you know they'll have a nice green backdrop. Frequently severely damaged by deer.
