Boxwood is a versatile landscape shrub that is often seen in more formal gardens, but works well even in the most casual of garden landscaping. With evergreen leaves that change color as they mature from bluish gray-green to dark green, boxwood is an outstanding choice for tall hedges.
Through the years, the boxwood has been associated with formal gardens. Boxwood parterres and hedges can be seen in many of the great gardens of Europe and America. Colonial Williamsburg, especially around the Governor’s Mansion, offers wonderful examples of formal boxwood use.
