American Boxwood, or Common Boxwood, are an excellent choice for hedges, borders or as individual specimens. Extremely cold-hardy and glossy in appearance, American Boxwood are a classic choice for gardens throughout the Northeast and Long Island. Easily shaped, these dense shrubs are great foundation plants and perform well in hedges. Left alone, these slow-growing plants can get very large but can be kept smaller with regular pruning. 

The first planting of American boxwood in America was on Shelter Island, NY, using boxwood brought over the Atlantic Ocean from Amsterdam.
