Multi Stem Boxwood Buxus Sempervirens Boxwood is an evergreen, small-leafed shrub with rounded, glossy dark green foliage. Buxus Sempervirens is very slow-growing with a tight, compact habit resulting in a dense, even form when clipped. Due to these characteristics, Buxus is very often used for topiary and geometrical low-hedging and is invariably grown for its attractive foliage. These elegant multi-stem Buxus specimens feature a rounded ball-shaped crown on top of raised multi-stems, with around 5 or 6 stems per plant. Because the topiary crown is raised above ground level, these Multi Stem Boxwoods present an interesting alternative to the regular Buxus globes.
How To Care For Box Topiary Boxwood does not mind pruning and shaping, a trait that has made it popular particularly for use as topiary, ornamental hedges and parterres in formal gardens. Boxwood multi stems are suitable either for growing in containers or in the ground. Plants in containers will need fertilizer. Box topiary should be trimmed around mid-summer, and again in late summer if required. During the growing season, make sure your Buxus plants get plenty of water.
