Cephalotaxus (Plum Yew)

The genus Cephalotaxus is commonly referred to as a Japanese Plum Yew because of their close resemblance to traditional yews (Taxus) and their edible plum-like fruit.

Most lauded for their ability to tolerate shade and to resist foraging deer, this versatile group of plants have many different uses in landscapes.
