I received 4 of the Stonehenge Skinny Yews this spring (2021). They arrived in excellent condition in Zone 7. I planted them right away and they have all survived the hot summer and are doing very nicely.

Meet Stonehenge Skinny yew - the narrowest, most space-saving evergreen around. It takes up a mere 1'/30.5cm square of ground space and grows as a lush, dense column of soft, evergreen foliage. It maintains its handsome, deep green color all year round, and is festooned with bright green in spring when the new growth emerges. It's a hard-working evergreen for landscapes and gardens of all types.
Available in better garden centers in spring 2021.
