NotesA pair of female Irish Yews, these are thought to be a mutation of English Yews.  They differ in two main ways, they are fastigiate, that means multi-stemmed, and the leaves are clustered all around all the stems while English Yews have most leaves in two flat rows.  English Yews have clustered leaves on some small upright stems that spring from the base and the mutation seems to make these the main growth.
