Taxus floridana

Yew, Florida

This is a very rare conifer that is restricted to the Apalachicola River area in northwest Florida. It is a shrub or small tree requiring moisture, but good drainage. Taxus is generally a cool climate plant so this Florida species may represent a relic of the ice age.  It has needle-leaf aromatic foliage and seed with fleshy red aril like other Yews.  It seems to grow well in semi shade with neutral or somewhat alkaline soil.  This is a rare and rarely offered species.
