6.50

Taxus baccata Fastigiata Aurea, commonly known as Golden Irish yew or Golden Irish yew tree, is a cultivar of Taxus baccata, a species of coniferous tree native to western, central, and southern Europe, including the British Isles.
The Fastigiata Aurea variety is prized for its unique golden-yellow foliage, which provides an attractive contrast to the deep green needles typically found on Taxus baccata trees. It is a slow-growing evergreen tree with an upright, columnar growth habit, making it an excellent choice for narrow spaces or as an accent plant in gardens and landscapes. Here are some key characteristics of Taxus baccata Fastigiata Aurea:

Foliage: The golden-yellow foliage is the standout feature of this cultivar. The needles are arranged in a spiraling pattern along the stems and provide year-round color and interest.

Growth habit: The tree has a narrow, upright form, which gives it a columnar or pyramidal shape. It typically reaches a mature height of 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters) and a spread of 3 to 5 feet (1 to 1.5 meters).

Growth rate: Like other Taxus baccata cultivars, Fastigiata Aurea is a slow-growing tree. It adds only a few inches of growth per year, which contributes to its dense and compact nature.

Hardy and adaptable: Golden Irish yew trees are generally hardy and can tolerate a wide range of soil types, as long as they are well-drained. They can thrive in both full sun and partial shade but prefer sheltered locations.

Landscape use: Due to its upright growth habit and attractive foliage color, Taxus baccata Fastigiata Aurea is often used as a specimen tree, creating vertical accents in formal gardens, mixed borders, or as a backdrop for other plants. It can also be planted in containers.
When planting and caring for a Golden Irish yew tree, it is essential to provide regular watering, especially during dry periods, to establish a healthy root system. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Pruning is generally minimal, mainly to maintain the desired shape and remove any dead or diseased branches.
