  • History & Lore
    History:
    This is a hybrid boxwood cultivar that resulted from the cross of the Asian B. microphylla var koreana with the European B. sempervirens. It is one of the Sheridan Green Series introduced by Sheridan Nurseries of Ontario, Canada. Boxwood is so named because its very hard wood was valued in ancient times for making boxes and small containers.
