Variegated English Boxwood
Buxus are grown for their small, neat, leathery leaves and dense long-lived growth habits. 'Variegata' is a versatile, slow growing boxwood that requires little shearing and fills out to a thick robust barrier hedge with fine branching that also takes well to shaping into topiary. The small rich deep green leaves of this variety are strikingly variegated with creamy yellow margins. Adaptable to slightly alkaline soils, but foliage is more lush under even moisture.
