Boxwood - Fastigata
The Boxwood Fastigiata, Buxus s. 'Fastigiata', has an upright habit and oval, glossy-green leaves which makes this shrub an excellent choice for a narrow hedge or exclamation point in the small garden; height may be controlled by prunining.
It is best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, sandy loams.
Boxwood fills in the gap in ornamentals with its many easily sculpted forms. They provide everything from topiary, pyramid, globe, and spiral shapes to hedges and Bonsai uses.
Fastigata is a slow grower that requires little special care other than annual pruning. This boxwood looks wonderful when planted in mass, or used as a specimen or accent.
