Taxus ×media ‘Baby’ PBR

A Polish variety with fine needles and a compact habit, suitable for low borders and medium-height hedges. During growth, it thickens spontaneously, forming compact bushes. It is distinguished from other varieties by shorter internodes and much smaller needles. The dark green needles are 1- 2 cm long and only 1.5-2 mm wide. The shrub grows relatively quickly and creates compact forms even with minimal pruning. A female variety, sets seeds in fleshy, red arils, eagerly eaten by birds. Plant tolerant of light. Average soil requirements, although it prefers fertile and permeable, moderately moist soils with a neutral to slightly acidic pH. Like all yews, it withstands urban conditions and at the same time cleans air of suspended dust. A fantastic variety for small gardens.
