Common BoxwoodBuxus sempervirens
Sometimes called the aristocrat of hedging plants, the boxwood is famous for its use in formal gardens. Crisp, high hedges and ornate topiaries are often the result of nurtured and carefully sheared boxwoods. But don’t let that deter you. It is a versatile landscape shrub that works well as a specimen, hedge, or mass planting—even in the most casual of gardens.
