If you’re looking for a small hedging plant then this is the one for you. Dutch Box is a dwarf box that grows with dense, glossy green foliage and works well in shaded areas.
Dutch Box likes full sun to part shade in moist, well-drained soil, but will tolerate a wide range of soils and conditions. It should be clipped to maintain a formal shape. This slow-growing plant grows to approximately 50-60cm in height. It is frost-hardy. Plant 5 per meter for the optimum hedge.
Slight discolouration of yellow may occur during cooler months, this is normal!
