Buxus Sempervirens



  Exposure: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Color: Evergreen
Category : Shrubs
Sizes available: 1G, 3G



Buxus sempervirens is a rounded to broad-rounded shrub or small tree 
that is native primarily to open woodlands and rocky hillsides in southern 
Europe, northern Africa and western Asia. It typically matures in a 
shrubby form to 5-15' tall but may grow as a tree to as much as 20-30' tall.

Small, elliptic to oval to oblong leaves (1/2" to 1 1/2" long) are simple, 
opposite, smooth-margined and evergreen. Commonly used for low 
fence-like hedges but can grow large over time. Slow growing. Prune 
once a year for shape. Leaves are dark glossy green above and 
yellowish-green below. 
Inconspicuous, apetalous flowers in axillary 
clusters are pale green to yellow to creamy white. Flowers appear in 
April and May and fruit is a dehiscent capsule (to 1/3" long) that 
matures to brown. 
Otherwise, boxwood requires little special care other than annual 
pruning. Some susceptibility to blights and leaf spot. Root rot can also 
be a problem in poorly - drained soils.  New growth is particularly 
susceptible to winter damage.
