It’s A New Yew

Long ago, we had two yew bushes on either side of our front door.  One winter, the deer decimated both plants, and because yews are apparently delicious to deer, I replaced them with two hollyberry shrubs.  These supposedly taste like crap to the deer; plus, they do well in the shade.

So far the hollyberries are doing fine.

As I was weeding last summer, I found the remnants of one of the old yew bushes, dug it up and stuck it in a pot.  As you can see by my picture, there is new growth on the yew, and I have to interpret that as a good sign.

Happy new yew!
