Japanese Box is a hardy evergreen compact shrub with dark green oval foliage when mature, its new growth being a light green colour. Japanese Box is the best box hedge for warmer regions as it tolerates heat better than other Buxus plants. It is suitable for a full sun to part shade position and requires little water once established.
Japanese Box are a traditional favourite, as they are perfect for formal evergreen hedges. Small glossy green foliage on a compact dense shrub, make them perfect for clipping or topiary. Buxus japonica can grow in full shade but will take much longer to establish. This plant has a moderate growth rate growing to approximately 1m in height. Plant 25cm apart – 4 per meter for an optimum hedge.
