Natal Plum 'Boxwood Beauty'


'Boxwood Beauty' carissa makes an excellent low-growing formal hedge as it is easily shaped and formed. In addition to this, it is thornless, making it a friendlier plant for walkways and areas that more commonly encounter foot traffic. Star-shaped, white flowers may appear throughout the year, complementing its form and augmenting its beauty.
