Japanese Boxwood has been in cultivation for centuries, valued primarily for its ability to tolerate heavy pruning and shaping, which makes it a practical choice for many garden situations and extremely useful in formal, polished gardens. This evergreen shrub has shiny, lustrous green leaves that are densely packed on multiple branches, and tends to have a solid, rounded form that makes a beautiful garden foundation when left un-pruned. However, Japanese Boxwood are more often seen as hedges, topiaries, or manicured mounds in the landscape. A mild, sweet fragrance surrounds this plant when tiny, greenish flowers bloom humbly amongst its foliage in spring.
