Boxwood American

The American Boxwood is a member of the family, Buxaceae. If you need reasons to include it in your garden, here are a few:

  • It is an elegant shrub, which is quite attractive, even in its original shape as a billowy oval mound.
  •  This species, B. sempervirens, has been ever popular and was a part of Thomas Jefferson’s gardens.
  •  Its hardy and easy to maintain nature meant that it lent itself to Victorian gardens even before that.
  •  Dense foliage and slow growth combine to give a boxwood that can live up to be 75 and even 100 years old!
  • Its glossy dark green foliage is all about good winter color that it brings to your garden.
  • Small yellow flowers and equally tiny brown fruits add to its décor­­.
  •  Looks even more outstanding as an all-rounder specimen, if planted in an entryway, or planted in masses to cascade from over a hillside or a wall.
