Comments: This is a dense, tight growing boxwood that makes an excellent small hedge that does not have to be clipped frequently. However, it is a slow-growing selection. A good selection for bonsai work, rock gardens and other places where detail is important. The foliage is yellow green instead of the dark blue green of many boxwoods.
