Classic evergreen design is yours with the English Boxwood. This is the perfect plant for lining pathways and edging flower beds, to bring an old-world charm to any garden. It is also ideal for clipping into balls and other small shapes for container planting, alone, or with annual flowers. Left unclipped it develops into an attractive mounding evergreen shrub three feet or more tall that brings structure and form to plantings around your house or in beds.

  • Classic dwarf evergreen for elegant gardens
  • Keeps its small size even with limited pruning
  • Perfect evergreen foliage all year
  • Resistant to insect attack
  • Deer resistant

Especially resistant to insects, English Boxwood is the ideal choice for easy gardening. Slower growth means less clipping and pruning is needed and its soft, glossy foliage is attractive in all seasons. As well as classic formal gardens, this plant is being used in modern gardens for informal groupings to great effect.
