Taxus baccata Ball

A Taxus baccata ball is formed from English Yew and is one of the classic topiary plants. It has been used in the very best gardens of the grandest Stately Homes and Palaces for many years as it is able to be trimmed into amazing geometric and formal shapes.  With regular trimming it can form great dense evergreen shapes. It can be kept as a small ball of around 40-50cm in diameter but can also be left to make a large ball in excess of 250cm in height or diameter, but at all of these sizes it will still be dense. If left un-trimmed it will flower and produce a red fruit in the Autumn, but with regular trimming these will not be produced.

Taxus baccata is one of only 3 conifers that are native to the United Kingdom. It is not particularly fond of sitting in wet soils and can struggle in these situations, however if the drainage is good it will happily grow in soils that are almost pure chalk through to very acidic peaty soils. It can be found growing wild on chalk soils.

A Taxus baccata Ball will add a touch of elegance to any garden that it is planted in and will form an easy to care for Topiary shape for many years.

Taxus baccata was awarded an Award of Garden merit by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1984.

We can offer Taxus baccata Balls in sizes form 40cm in diameter to over 100cm in diameter
