The Buxus is native to Japan & is the most common buxus grown in Australian gardens being the most hardy. It is a compact evergreen plant, with glossy, dark green & oval foliage. Ideal as a trim or outline for other landscaping features, it should be kept away from other plants because of its shallow root depth, so it excels around decking, pergolas or pathways. An essential plant for anyone building a Chinese or Japanese-style garden, it also looks exceptional in more traditional English formal garden thanks to its ability to be easily and quickly shaped into any form.
Well suited to all Australian climates, it grows readily in all conditions, but prefers partly shaded conditions which leads to increased foliage density and a minimised chance of scorching. Must be protected from strong winds as the small leaves can easily be damaged through dehydration. Be careful to remove dead branches from the hedges to keep air circulation at the optimum level.
Use it as part of a retaining wall or a topiary feature. For hedging, plant between 25 and 30 centimetres apart for neat, continuous growth.
