Varieties of Box - Buxus Species

Box is evergreen, shade tolerant and easy to maintain. The Boxwood tree or Common Box, Buxus sempervirens, and the slower growing Dwarf Box, Buxus sempervirens Suffruticosa, are classic hedging plants for low hedges, topiary, knot gardens and parterres.
Dwarf box is best for very low, decorative work, while a Common box hedge can reach about 9 metres tall over the years. A Common Boxwood tree has a shaggy, mop-headed canopy and most of its trunk is covered in short side branches down to the ground.
