Sebian is one of the more common bush yew cultivars in the northern USA. It bears good dark foliage all year and is a spreading form about 3 to 4 feet high x 4 to 8 feet wide being sort of flat topped. It is a male cultivar that does not bear the red arils with seed, but does bear yellow soft cones in spring that let loose clouds of yellow pollen for a short time.
