Source for Taxus Baccata plain form

poaky1August 9, 2012

As the subject title states I want the regular tree form of European yew. I want to buy A Dynamite Crepe Myrtle too. I think it may be impossible to find both in one place though. They(yews) are available from UK and Europe, but may be illegal to ship to the US from overseas, I know oaks are anyway. Every search leads to special cultivars etc. that I don't like. Thanks

Why do you specifically want Taxus baccata? I find Taxus media 'Hicksii' (female) and 'Hillii' (male) have more interesting needle arrays both in size and form, once mine are big enough they will replace my native Taxus bacatta for hedging. Stand alone specimens are a different matter as native baccata will be more bushy until mature while media will be more upright.

I have several Hick's yew in my yard as hedging. I want the tree form for a gravesite. I know it is slow growing but I like the tree form. I know I'll be long gone before it gets very big. I can't think of a more fitting tree for a gravesite. I have posted on the tree forum too and got lots of sources there so I may not check on this forum anymore.
