Buxus sempervirens is an evergreen shrub or small tree that forms tufts of dense green growth. This hard-working plant is frequently used for edging and borders along pathways and around flower beds.

“Buxus sempervirens is a fantastic evergreen shrub that is very versatile as a privacy screen or hedge in the landscape. We use it frequently in a clipped, conical form to define a garden perimeter or to create a permeable barrier with a structured vertical rhythm.”
