Buxus sempervirens, commonly known as Common Boxwood or European Boxwood, is a versatile evergreen shrub often used in landscaping and formal gardens.

  • Maximum Height: Buxus sempervirens typically grows to a maximum height of 1 to 3 meters (3 to 10 feet), depending on the specific cultivar and growing conditions. It can be pruned and shaped to suit your desired height and form.

  • Care Instructions: Here are some care guidelines for Buxus sempervirens:

    • Sunlight: It prefers partial to full shade but can tolerate some dappled sunlight.
    • Soil: Well-drained soil is essential. Ensure good drainage to prevent root rot.
    • Water: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry periods. However, avoid overwatering, as it doesn't like to sit in soggy soil.
    • Pruning: Regular pruning, especially in early spring or late winter, helps maintain its shape and density. Boxwood responds well to pruning and can be shaped into hedges, topiaries, or formal garden features.
    • Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring to promote healthy growth.
  • Hardiness: Buxus sempervirens is hardy in a range of climate zones, typically USDA hardiness zones 5 to 8 and RHS hardiness zones H4 to H7. This means it can tolerate temperatures as low as -10°C to -20°C (14°F to -4°F) or even lower in some cases, depending on the specific variety and local conditions.

Buxus sempervirens is valued for its dense, evergreen foliage and adaptability to various garden styles. With proper care, it can be a beautiful and long-lasting addition to your landscape.
