A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories

Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) is the aristocrat of formal gardens. Native to Europe, this species has been used extensively in North America since colonial times. The dwarf variety, known as English boxwood (Buxus sempervirens ‘Suffruticosa’), is widely used as edging, hedges and foundation plants. Many other cultivars of common or American boxwood (B. sempervirens) have been selected for form and foliage characteristics.
