The Box hedge plant (Buxus sempervirens) is the ideal species for formal low hedges or pathway hedging as well as being a classic topiary plant. Buxus sempervirens has very dense small round dark evergreen leaves. It is a slow growing plant with an average rate of growth of approx 10-15cm p.a. and it should be trimmed in late spring with hand shears if possible, keeping the blade of the shears parallel to the hedge surface.
Buxus sempervirens is a native, shade tolerant plant that is suitable for most soil types and sites other than wet or windy sites
