However, most people know this popular evergreen as a foundation shrub because it takes well to pruning.

Look for our our Taxus (yew) in the middle Section, where it is maturing nicely as a Small Tree.

Check out our Natural Bench at the north end of the arboretum… this bench was made from a 90+ year old specimen, form the estate of Joseph Curtain.
