Taxus baccata 'David' is a neat, slow-growing, narrowly columnar, coniferous, evergreen shrub with dense, erect branches with linear, needle-like, green leaves with broad golden yellow margins. It’s a male cultivar that doesn’t produce berries. Taxus baccata 'David' can grow in a wide range of soils, even dry and poor, but prefers evenly moist, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun or partial shade, but can tolerate full shade. It is resistant to frost and can withstand exposed positions. Tolerant of urban pollution. Very low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning, but can be trimmed when required. English Yew ‘David’ is an interesting and attractive columnar shrub that can add structure and evergreen colour into informal, cottage, urban, rock, and gravel gardens. Excellent as a specimen plant or planted in groups. Great for beds and borders, hedges and screens, or foundation plantings. Suitable for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
