Common box is a dense, rounded broadleaf evergreen shrub grown for its glossy green foliage and neat habit. Native to Europe, North Africa and Turkey, it is a classic hedge and specimen plant in many of the great European gardens. It tolerates shearing and can be shaped in ornamental forms. Its small leaves give the sheared plant a tidy texture.Common box thrives in partial shade to full shade on fertile, well-drained soil. In alkaline soils, climates with dry, hot summers, and sites in full sun this shrub will not grow or look its best. This species is only moderately cold-hardy and can be bothered by mites, leaf miners and nematodes (tiny root worms).Use the cultivars of common box for specimen plants, for evergreen color in mixed borders, and for hedges, unsheared in informal gardens or sheared in formal gardens.Boxwood plants need little special care once established but the seedlings require shelter from wind, extreme cold and must have consistent irrigation. They can be grown in pots until they are large enough for transplanting into the garden setting. One-year-old seedlings can generally withstand transplantation in United States Department of Agriculture Plant Hardiness Zones 5 to 9. Mulch around the young plants after they have been planted in the ground to minimize weeds and conserve moisture. The plants may be lightly shaped in the second year and sheared hard in the third. Boxwood should be fertilized in early spring and again in June or July if soil tests indicate it is necessary. (source: ehow.com)
