Once a month we will highlight a plant that is both suitable and stylish for the traditional Auckland garden. This month our plant is :
Buxus Microphylla : Box Hedge
This beautiful evergreen shrub is native to Japan and Taiwan, and is utilized predominately as a formal hedging plant or topiary. Its foliage boasts a bright green oval shape leaf with a rounded or notched tip.
Its hardy resistant nature to disease makes it an elegant alternative to the popular Buxus Sempervirens.
Perfect for a formal setting, Buxus Microphylla will create that lift to any Auckland designer garden.
