It is commonly known as Yew, Black Yew, Sabine and Tagus. This species comes from Europe, northwest Africa and southwest Asia.

They are dioecious evergreen conifers that can reach 10-15 metres in height. Their bark is reddish in colour and cracks with age. They can live for hundreds of years. The leaves are linear and dark green on the upper side with 2 light lines on the underside. It usually flowers in late winter and early spring but the flowers are insignificant. Its showy red fruits ripen in late summer.

It is a very slow growing plant, used to create hedges and windbreaks, as isolated specimens and as bonsais. It is important to note that the leaves and seeds are very poisonous if swallowed.

Yew can grow in full sun, semi-shade and shade. It is very frost resistant.

It is a plant that grows in any type of soil (even calcareous) but prefers a well-drained and cool substrate. It is planted and transplanted in autumn or spring.

It should be watered regularly so that the substrate is always slightly damp. They do not withstand prolonged drought or excessive watering.

It should be fertilised in autumn with manure or compost.

Yew trees tolerate pruning to shape and control growth.

They are fairly resistant to pests and diseases but can be attacked by fungi if water accumulates in the roots. Overly acidic soil causes the leaves to turn yellow.

They are propagated from cuttings in late summer or early autumn and from seeds sown in spring but can take 2-3 years to germinate.
