Box Common or Buxus sempervirens is one of the most commonly used plants for topiary. Seen and used in many gardens in the UK and across Europe this superb slow growing evergreen plant can be used in many ways and formed into many different shapes. Topiary Box Balls make great feature points in beds or borders and again as focal points in parterres and low mazes. They can also be grown in pots making features on patios and decking. The Boxwood timber is extremely heavy and this plant unlike others will not float in water.
Buxus sempervirens ball shapes can be clipped to neaten early summer or on the traditional day for trimming Box hedges or topiary shapes which is Derby day. The leaves of Box balls are dark green small and shiny in appearance making them a perfect plant for neat and precise clipping. Box topiary ball shapes can be grown on as large spheres over a long period of time as the growth rate is approximately 4- 6 inches per year.
Box ball shapes are supplied in pots which means they can be planted out and will tolerate most reasonable soils if being incorporated into a garden design or can be transferred into ornamental pots for specific sites whether that be full sun or partial shade around the house and garden.
