This is an older cultivar that grows as a dense, rounded form. It is a male clone and bears clouds of yellow pollen in spring from the yellow soft cones. Nurseries list it as growing about 6 feet high x 9 feet wide. Dr. Dirr has seen it to 9 feet high x 12 feet wide. Some nurseries still sell it, but it is not so common as it once was.(Hatfield is the male clone that is very similar to Hicks Yew but a little wider, not Brown's.)

According to several sources, 'Brownii' is the male version of Taxus x media 'Hicksii', and thus, does not produce berries. Easy to keep to a nice hedge height and width. Grows about 4-6" a year in my zone, so can be kept tidy with a yearly trimming.
