English Boxwood

14 Mar , 2015  

buxus sempervirens suffruticosa English BoxwoodLatin Name: Buxus sempervirens

Description: Miniature, compact, upright oval-shaped, growing only 1’3″ each year. Dark green rounded foliage. Ideal for a slow growing, low maintenance miniature hedge. We have grown and tested dozens of varieties and cultivars of boxwood since the early 1940’s. The ones we currently list perform exceedingly well in this region, even in our open fields. They also have proven resistant to deer browsing. All will tolerate some shade where they tend to grow more open-branched and less dense. Winter color of most boxwood is typically bronze when newly planted. When properly grown, foliage is nearly as green in winter as in summer and plants are tolerant of low moisture. An ideal hedging plant, very tolerant of frequent shearing and shaping.
