Buxus sempervirens

Buxus sempervirens

Buxus can be evergreen shrubs or small trees, with simple, leathery, opposite leaves and clusters of small, pale yellow flowers followed by pale green to brown fruits. Box topiary are a great way to keep structure and shape in the garden all year round. Location: Ideal for flanking an entrance, marking the corners of a hedge, or in terracotta pots on the patio. Plant in well-drained soil in partial shade. Avoid scorch by sun and strong winds. As an informal hedge, box requires little pruning. Care: Keep plants to the desired size by pruning back long shoots. Hedging plants and topiary can be cut back hard when young to encourage bushy growth.
