Buxus Sempervirens Cones also Boxwood Pyramid Topiary
Evergreen, small-leaved, slow growing Buxus Sempervirens (Boxwood) has been gracing our gardens for centuries. It is best loved as a neatly clipped low hedge or use in geometric topiary shapes like these ever-popular Buxus Sempervirens Cones, also known as Buxus Pyramid Topiary.
Buxus Topiary Cones are generally planted in pairs creating a symmetrical effect or at the corners of a low growing boxwood hedge to create a geometric balance. Plant on their own where you want to emphasise structure. However you use them, Buxus Topiary Cones will add a graceful elegance to your garden or patio - think of them as living green sculpture. As it is slow growing, Buxus Sempervirens topiary only requires one clip per year (maximum two) to keep it in shape.
In recent years, Buxus Sempervirens has sadly fallen out the favour with the gardening world due to the unfortunate incurrence of the dreaded box blight. So much so in fact, that we had stopped selling Buxus Sempervirens in any form whether as parterre hedging or topiary cones. However, we are pleased to report that slowly but surely, resistance to box blight seems to be growing and we are pleased to reintroduce strong specimens of Buxus that are proving to be resistant to the blight. These beautifully graceful topiary Buxus Cones are no exception. And we are delighted to reintroduce them to our Buxus Topiary collection.
If you are interested in good alternatives to English Boxwood (Buxus Sempervirens), we also recommend Ilex Crenata (Japanese Holly) as an ideal, blight resistant alternative. Read more on our blog post - Ilex Crenata – the practical answer to Box Blight
