Taxus x media 'Hicksii' is an upright evergreen shrub with dark green foliage. It is versatile and can be used as a hedge, screen, or specimen plant.
Caring for Hicks Yew (Taxus x media 'Hicksii') involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Hicks Yew is an evergreen shrub that thrives in well-draining soil and can tolerate a range of soil types. It prefers partial shade to full sun but can tolerate some shade as well. Water the shrub deeply and regularly during the first year of establishment, and then only as needed. Once established, Hicks Yew is relatively drought-tolerant. Prune the shrub in late winter or early spring to shape it and remove any dead or damaged branches. Be cautious not to remove too much foliage, as yews have limited ability to regenerate from old wood. Hicks Yew is generally resistant to pests and diseases but keep an eye out for any signs of trouble. With proper care, your Hicks Yew will provide you with dense, dark green foliage and serve as an excellent choice for hedges, screens, or as a foundation plant in your landscape.
