Taxus floridana is an evergreen coniferous shrub or small tree growing to 20 feet tall, with a trunk up to 15 inches diameter. The bark is thin and the branches are irregularly orientated. The shoots are green at first, becoming brown after three or four years.

Conifers have been around since the Paleozoic Era, though modern conifer groups diversified and were of greatest importance during the Mesozoic Era.
