Korean plum yew (Tripp 1995).
The molecular analysis of Hao et al. (2008) showed that the clade C. harringtonia - C. koreana - C. wilsoniana is monophyletic, and that the latter two species could be treated as varieties of C. harringtonia.
An upright, slow-growing shrub to 3 m tall, densely branched with black-green needles ca. 5 cm long and 4 mm wide (Tripp 1995).
Endangered by extensive clearcutting in Korea (Yinger 1989).
