Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Prostrata' / Prostrate Japanese Plum Yew
Japanese plum yew is an evergreen, needled shrub. The cultivar 'Prostrata' has a low growing spreading mounding habit.
Plant it in full sun if you have cool summers; otherwise, it needs partial shade and tolerates shade better than most other needled evergreens.
Once established this plant is drought tolerant and deer resistant. 'Prostrata' grows very slowly to 2 to 6 feet tall and wide.
'Prostrata' works well as a specimen plant, used along a foundation, as a low hedge, planted under the canopy of trees, or mass planted along a border. Plant it in a woodland setting or in a shade or winter garden. Its fragrant glossy needles provide year-round interest and makes an interesting change in the landscape from the typical junipers.
