Evergreen Oddball

Evergreen Oddball

The Pacific Yew (Taxus brevifolia) is unusual in that it is the only North American evergreen whose leaves (needles) change colour in the fall. The tree is a natural source of Taxol, a chemical used in several cancer drugs. This colourful example sits on a hillside not far from where I live.
