Emerald Spreader® Japanese Yew (Taxus cuspidata 'Monloo')

This exceptional cold hardy evergreen shrub is a perfect low-maintenance choice for ground cover, large scale borders or low hedge. Strong and sturdy, it provides good erosion control on slopes. Attractive dark green foliage retains color in the coldest of winters.

 

Fantastic cold hardy ground cover for cut slopes, banks and naturally sloping ground subject to problem run-off and erosion. It is well suited to expansive borders and islands for low maintenance weed-blocking coverage between more high profile upright shrubs. A strong grower, it stands up against the edges of walks and driveways. Foliage gracefully grounds larger rock outcroppings and will drape off curbs and retaining walls. -from Monrovia
