Boxwood - English - Variegated

The Variegated English Boxwood-Buxus sempervirens ‘Variegata’ has the good growth habits of the “suffruticosa”.  What makes this plant so appealing is its variegated color. There is no better variegated plant for our climate than this boxwood, especially if being used in full sun. It withstands drought and grows naturally into a mounding form. The bright yellow color makes this a great plant to use as a specimen in a natural landscape, because of its shape and the many color contrast possibilities when used with other colorful plants. This boxwood may also be shaped with regular pruning.
