Buxus balls require little attention and therefore are ideal for a low maintenance, garden, patio or balcony.
Serenata is the source for healthy plants to give to a loved one or friend. A plant is a gift that lasts much longer than cut flowers. Buxus plants, also called boxwood, are small, evergreen shrubs. Serenata has potted boxwoods that are shaped in spires, balls and other decorative forms. Buxus plants can grow in pots and thrive on a sunny patio if they are pulled into an enclosure when temperatures reach below freezing.
Boxwoods will flower in the spring if not kept too closely trimmed, but trimming is needed often if the owner wants to keep the plants a certain shape. Still, the flowers are small and they either have very small petals or they do not have petals. Another thing to note about cutting boxwoods is that the more they are trimmed, the fuller they become. A buxus plant is native to all of western and southern Europe, southwest Asia, northern Morocco and the Middle East.
When left untrimmed, a buxus plant can grow up to nine metres tall when planted in the ground. The small shrubs prefer much limestone or chalk in the soil, but they are hardy and they will grow in other soil types. These pleasing ornamentals are attractive and easy to maintain. Many people plant them around the edges of their garden for a border shrub or hedge.
When it comes to easy care ornamental plants, buxus plants are one of the best possible choices. These plants are hardy and love to live, but they do grow slowly. Used as topiaries, potted ornamentals or as hedges, they are plants that last. Serenata has especially grown, trimmed and gift packaged buxus plants ready to send to loved ones and special people.
