Structure and Punctuation

Structure and Punctuation

The backbone of garden design are plants that make a statement in one way, shape or form.

Fastigiate Taxus are an excellent choice for creating an upright statement when used in isolation, used as repetition, to create focal points, to lead the eye, to provide structure or to create a sense of movement and rhythm.

The upright formal stature of fastigiate Taxus provide interest in the winter months with tight, dense foliage cover and continues to stand above shrubs and herbaceous foliage in the summer months. A great all rounder for any planting plan.

We have four options all of which form narrow upright columns of structure and are all slow growing meaning you can plant with peace of mind that these Taxus are not going to push out any surrounding planting.
