Fritz Huber Japanese Plum Yew
The compact, prostrate habit is well-suited to foundation plantings, hedges, borders, and containers.
Japanese Plum Yew is not a true Yew at all, but a far more gardenworthy plant ready to make an impression in any landscape. This prostrate variety hugs the ground, spreading up to four feet wide but only about 2 feet tall. Needle-like and glossy, the evergreen foliage stands out handsomely around foundations and borders.
'Fritz Huber' is left alone by pests and diseases, and keeps looking its best even in heat, humidity, and (once established) drought. Few shrubs can match its appeal!
This is a good selection for formal settings, but it is also content in the informal border or casual accent planting. Highly recommended for its compact size, attractive foliage, and ease of culture. Zones 6-9.
