The boxwood is a very popular ornamental shrub, being particularly valued for topiary and hedges because of its tolerance of close shearing, small leaves, and scented foliage. This hardy and compact plant offers leaves of dark green above and light or yellowish green beneath and usually lustrous on both sides. It produces creamy yellow flowers, without petals, in small clusters in the spring. The boxwood is an excellent specimen good for hedges, mass planting and formal gardens and is often called the aristocrat of the hedging plants.
