Search For Your Ideal Yew Box Balls & Cones


Box (Buxus sempervirens) is a versatile, evergreen plant with naturally dense growth that creates an excellent edge for a border, partition hedge or sophisticated topiary. It has been widely used for centuries. However, maintaining them has become more challenging in recent years. Yew (Taxus baccata) is an excellent alternative that many gardeners and landscape designers have taken to.

With Box (Buxus sempervirens) you can get a better shape due to its tight habit and it can look fantastic. Alternatively, Yew’s (Taxus baccata’s) foliage is looser, though can be kept in the same shape for centuries without bothering the plant and has generally had less issues in the past few years than Box (Buxus sempervirens)
