Box Hedging Plants

‘Common Box’, Buxus Sempervirens

Box or Buxus hedging plants are evergreen and a great candidate for a low hedge. Box hedging is widely used as an edging plant around flowerbeds and pathways creating formal spaces. The dense habit of Box makes it ideal for hedging or screening and allows for close clipping into formal shapes for topiary. Box is very hardy and can survive the harshest of winters. Buxus sempervirens has small, glossy, dark green leaves are up to 3cm long. Box responds well to clipping and large hedges are usually clipped no more than once during the growing season. If a box hedge becomes overgrown it can be cut to within a few inches of the ground from where it will rapidly sprout and develop into and orderly feature once more. An excellent choice for a dense, low maintenance evergreen hedge. Great for low hedges.
