Commonly known as Box Hedge, this shrub is commonly used in English and formal gardens as a low hedge. This evergreen produces masses of small, dark green leaves which are held densely on short stems. Left untrimmed it will eventually grow to 1 m tall and the same wide but is often trimmed to much smaller sizes. This shrub performs best when planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained, semi-sheltered site. It is tolerant of most soil types, except at the extremes of wet and dry, frost, cool climates, and coastal conditions. This Buxus is most commonly trimmed into a small hedge, used for topiary, or maintained in a container. Space plants 20 cm apart for hedging.
