We grow this shrub as we spotted them at a nursery many years ago and they were crown lifted. The stems of the Buxus sempervirens seemed almost white and contrasted very well with the dark green foliage. This is what we try and achieve with our plants, but they are extremely slow growing and it takes many years to achieve the look we want. Small, compact evergreen tree. Perfect as part of a border or as a standalone tree. They can be grown into small umbrella shaped trees or pruned into topiary shapes

of new growth.
Autumn colour: N/A
