Description:

The perfect evergreen hedge for tight spaces or to create a privacy screen. Lustrous dark green leaves have a lighter green underside. Very columnar growth makes it an ideal specimen for formal topiary shapes. Medium to finely textured foliage does not brown out in winter, and its density makes it a favorite shelter plant for birds.

Patent Act: Asexual reproduction of plants protected by the Plant Patent Act is prohibited during the life of the patent.
Design Ideas: Plant tightly spaced for a carefree evergreen hedge barrier. Density is ideal for boundary hedges to define space. Narrow diameter is particularly valuable in side-yards for privacy screens along fence line or at windows. Use as single columnar specimen or in pairs to flank gate or entry. Adapts well to shearing but remains naturally narrow if allowed to grow unhindered. Foolproof background for semi-formal borders. A superior evergreen foundation plant to soften large bare walls and cloak utilities.

Thrives in enriched, well-drained, neutral to slightly acidic soils. Mulch root zone to conserve moisture and to keep roots cool. Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune as needed to shape.

History

The wood of box is the hardest of all European woods, and its yellow coloring made it prized by the wood engraver for carving wood blocks from which the famous old botanical wood cut illustrations were made. It's also used to make mathematical instruments.
