Whatever plant is used, topiary of any kind always draws attention, bringing elegance to the garden like few other things can. Buxus, or Box, is the classic plant for growing as topiary because of its glossy, evergreen foliage and small leaves which lend themselves perfectly to being clipped into precise shapes.
Box topiary provides valuable structure in the garden all year round and our classic pyramid is the perfect example. Planted in borders it provides a beautiful focal point, and it looks stunning when grown n an eye-catching pot and arranged either side of a door or gate, or lining a path.
Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators', box has tiny yellow spring flowers, which although hardly noticeable to us, are favourite with butterflies and bees.
Incredibly tough and fully winter hardy, box is slow growing so its shape stays looking neat with little more than a light trim just twice a year. Clipping these plants is so therapeutic, and once you have one topiary plant, you're certain to want more and more!
Supplied as an established plant in a 26cm pot, 60-70cm in height.
