Buxus japonica Ball
Traditional variety of box. Small to medium evergreen shrub, with glossy, oval, dark green leaves.
A hardy, low maintenance plant that grows well in both full sun and partial shade, however, foliage can become lime green/yellow when exposed to direct sunlight. Capable of tolerating a wide range of soil types.
Topiary balls are ideal for formal gardens or modern Japanese gardens, though can add structure to any garden. They are great planted in clusters, or used in pots to frame an entrance or walkway.
