If this slow-growing plant is to live successfully indoors, it must be kept in an unheated room; since it will tolerate a drafty situation, it is ideal for a cool hall or passageway. The upright stems bear narrow, straplike, glossy 3-in/8-cm- long leaves, but the catkin-like flowers are not produced indoors.

The plant is also known as Japanese yew or Kusamaki; indeed, the variety most frequently seen as a houseplant is ‘Maki'’ whose growth is compact and whose leaves are only V2in/13mm long.
