Buxus sempervirens

Buxus sempervirens
Common name English boxwood; common boxwood
Family buxaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z5-8)
Flowers white (spring)
Size 6-8'
Light sun

For twelve years our garden went without the common boxwood, but it has finally arrived. As a foundation planting, no less! When we revamped the front perennial border, some persistent evergreen structure was called for at the back. I don't intend to clip it into a ball or any other regular shape, although it will require pruning to keep it to the size we intend.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: front perennial border
