The Taxus

Taxus is a genus of coniferous trees or shrubs known as yews in the family Taxaceae. They are relatively slow-growing and can be very long-lived, and reach heights of 2.5–20 metres (8.2–65.6 ft), with trunk girth averaging 5 metres (16 ft).[1] They have reddish bark, lanceolate, flat, dark-green leaves 10–40 millimetres (1?2–1+1?2 in) long and 2–3 mm (3?32–1?8 inch) broad, arranged spirally on the stem, but with the leaf bases twisted to align the leaves in two flat rows either side of the stem.[2] The oldest known fossil species are from the Early Cretaceous.[3]
