Winter Friendly Plant

Japanese Yew Winter Plant

Commonly grown in North America and Eastern Asia, Japanese Yew is an excellent fit for porches year-round since it’s drought tolerant, and thrives in both full sun and partial sun settings. Known to survive harsh winters as cold as 30 degrees below zero, the Japanese Yew is popularly used as ground cover; however, when grown as a tree, it can reach up to 50 feet in height. For proper growth, plant Japanese Yew in in a damp setting.
