The Q&A Archives: Spreading Japanese Yew

Question: I live on the border of Zone 7B and 8A. I am thinking of planting a spreading Japanese Yew as a speciman plant. It will be protected on two sides by the house and fence and sitting on the southside of the house. Will it survive in this zone during the winter? It will get full morning sun until about 1:30 p.m., then shade.


Answer: Japanese Yew is hardy in USDA zones 4-7. It should survive your winter weather without problem. Best wishes with your landscape!
