Buxus

Search Buxus
This traditional evergreen is grown for its small, neat, dense leaf habit and its longevity. Commonly know as Box, it is the primary plant that is used for low-growing border hedging and topiary. They are an absolute must for a Parterre garden and will add linear emphasis to a formal design. These are tough plants that have simple requirements. They thrive in sun or shade and adapt well to climates that are warmer even though their preference is for cooler climates. They are tolerant of regular cliping – in fact they seem to love it - which encourages them to retain a tightly growing leaf habit and this makes them desirable as specimens for shaping. It is always best to cut them back after the new growth has sprouted.

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!
