Taxus Berries

Yew Berries from a Relict Grove of the Petrov Island, Primorsky Krai, Russia


Taxus is a conifer evergreen tree. The entire yew bush is toxic enough to kill a horse, but yew trees widely grown as an ornamental plant. Berries are not so toxic.
Taxus baccata

Welcome to Petrov Island! An ancient sacred place of Jurchen people.
