Main asset

Basis of middle-age geometric or French garden. Plant very hardy, supporting arid or limestone soil conditions, giving a frame to the garden.


Despite recent health problems, resistance to soil conditions and climate of the Boxwood is unmatched. The Cylindrocladium is favored by wet autumn conditions, especially persistence of water in the foliage. The Boxwood Moth, now present in all Europe, does three generations per year, requiring insecticide treatment (chemical or biological) from May. The most promising alternatives of Boxwood are Pittosporum in the South (cv. 'Golf Ball'), Ilex crenata in Atlantic climate (cv. 'Green Edge') and Taxus in cold climates.

Boxwood with medium-size green leaves, which do not blush in winter. It has a very slow growth due to short internodes.
