A compact evergreen box look-alike. The plants of this selected form are produced by cuttings, so are uniform and therefore perfect for hedges and topiary. Small white flowers in early summer and black berries on female plants.

An easy shrub in sun or partial shade, exposed or sheltered positions on any well drained soil except chalk. Regenerates from old bare wood.

N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.

As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
