'Graham Blandy' is an upright sort of chap who will always stand up tall and erect in the garden. With a natural columnar habit this Box is perfect for adding an exclamation point to planting schemes. Easy to grow in sun or part shade. Evergreen.

Ideal for narrow spaces or group together to form a natural screen of green. Perhaps march along the side of a path or drive. A very useful plant for directional planting.

Picture of Buxus Green Gem
CLICK TO ENLARGE

A slow growing compact form of Box with a naturally rounded shape. In spring the fresh new growth is shaded a beautiful soft lime green turning to a darker glossy green on maturity. Easy to grow in sun or part shade. Evergreen.

'Green Gem' is the perfect choice for a low hedge as it doesn't need as much clipping as other Buxus due to its compact habit. Nice for topiary work too. Though 'Green Gem' is very tolerant and hardy it prefers not to have 'wet feet' in winter - quite understandable, I don't much like wet feet myself!

Bred by in NZ by Mark Jury. A beautiful, easy to grow Michelia with dainty spring flowers which are delightfully fragrant and coloured an unusual lilac pink. The dark green foliage always looks good and is disease resistant. Happy in the sun or part shade. Evergreen.

I put 6 of these in my front garden a year ago and they have done remarkably well and seem quite robust. I intend to trim them up to make a standard shape but they do equally well left as a bush or used as a hedge.
