  Yews are normally found as foundation plants, in front of porches and under decks. The tree version of the yew is sometimes found as a landscape plant placed on the corner of houses and homes.

They grow in shade or sun and yews are a bright green in spring and then turn a dark green during the summer. The female plant will produce red berries in winter, but requires a male plant nearby. Recommend protecting the plant from harsh winter winds with burlap screens.
