    Pros -

    Can anyone identify this shrub for me? One of my regulars has one that died and would like it replaced. Just want to make sure I know the exact name.

    It looks, by pic #3 as if it is an English Spreading Yew, but the first two pics seem to have a different growth pattern. It is definately a Yew though.

    It is a yew

    If you take a sample to your local nursery the should be able to determine the exact variety.

    You need to investigate by digging up the dead one and determine what killed it before replacing it.
    Take a sample to you local extension agency.

    It is a Japaneses spreading yew. It probably died because of over watering or root disturbance or incorrect planting depth.
