Taxus Yellow Leaves

If it is only the older leaves, they are doing what they are supposed to.

Taxus Yellow Leaves

Post  bonsaisr on Mon Oct 24, 2011 9:21 pm

Many beginners in horticulture don't realize that "evergreen" doesn't mean the leaves last indefinitely. It means that THIS year's leaves last through the winter. In pines, yews, cedars, junipers, etc., the needles last one, two, or three full years. Then they turn yellow and fall on schedule. If you look at the pines in your neighborhood, the ground about now is covered with two year old needles that fell this fall.

Hi Jozsika, you have a nice healthy Yew. There are a few yellow tips so it could be a good idea to give a tonic that contains trace elements.

How to develop the branches is shown well in your photo:

A) this years growth
B) last years growth
C) two years ago's Growth (after the needles have dropped/removed) the preferred buds appear, these are what you should be using to fill out the foliage pads.

There is no single reason for yellowing on needles, it could be too much water, a deficiency in some trace elements, not enough sun! insect infestation...any number of causes.

Sorry I cannot be more specific Rolling Eyes

Hi jozsika,

that does look like Taxus root.

Your next task is to repot in better open soil, sort out the roots, try and make a good nebari (root spread) and gain more health in the tree. The time to repot Taxus is when the new growth is just starting on the tree, wait until 1cm of new growth has appeared then repot. Here in the UK this is usually around mid April.

hope this helps bounce
