This unusal variety of box grows naturally into a rounded shape, thus giving the appearance of a trimmed plant, but without pruning. Very dense habit with glossy green leathery evergreen foliage with an unusual sweet smell. Small, inconspicuous, tufty, honey scented, clusters of pale yellow flowers appear in the leaf axils from late winter to spring followed by pale green to brown fruits. The flowers are attractive to bees and other insects.. Good for containers and for planting in a knot garden.

SHRUB 60cm (2ft) ball in 20 years. Approximate 1m (3.5ft) ball when fully grown.

Pot Grown Plants

These are normally sold in small 9cm wide pots, unless a different pot size is shown (where the pot size is shown in litres). Pot grown plants can be planted at any time of the year.


Pot Grown are generally available all year.

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.
