Boxwood Shrubs for Sale Online | Garden Goods Direct
Boxwood shrubs have always been at home in a formal setting or a casual situation. Boxwoods are one of the most versatile shrubs in any garden. In winter boxwood’s strong shapes dominate the landscape, standing like evergreen sentinels. In summer, when the garden is in full bloom with bright colors, they create a dark background providing a backdrop to highlight colors. To some gardeners, the most familiar forms are what are commonly referred to as American boxwoods (Buxus sempervirens) and English boxwoods (Buxus sempervirens Suffruticosa). There are about 90 different species and over 300 different cultivars, including Japanese and Korean varieties. The difference in boxwood plants and species vary tremendously. Size, shape, leaf color, growth rates, and hardiness are just a few of the differences. The trick to using these evergreens in your garden is to choose the best selection to fit your particular vision and growing conditions. We’re here to help with your questions.
