European yew, Taxus baccata, collected in Poland in 2009, first image of 2011. This tree got the final styling in June of this year. Now, three months later it is time to take another look. Some small branches died as expected. But this did not matter at all. Everything else appears quite vigorous now and the crown does nto have that recently styled look anymore. The tree will sustain a long winter. The chinese pot was adapted by WP.
