Buxus microphylla 'Faulkner'


Buxus Microphylla 'Faulkner'

Currently 8-10cm tall

Buxus Microphylla 'Faulkner' is also known as evergreen Dwarf Japanese Box. 

Faulkner is a popular choice because he’s particularly low growing and has small oval-shaped glossy green leaves.

Faulkner has a dense growth habit and creates a full, tight-knit hedge. One of the best ways to use him is edging or low borders for a pathway or flowerbed, but he also tolerates container-based topiary.

If you need a low-growing pop of dark glossy green colour that doesn’t cry for attention, then dwarf Japanese box is a good choice. It grows well in most soils and appreciates yearly mulching. You’ll need to water young plants regularly to help them get established.

Faulkner is frost tolerant and likes the full sun, but he’ll tolerate partial shade too.

The leaves of boxwood are extremely toxic to pets so please keep this in mind when your furry mates are concerned.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m ideal for dwarf hedges, borders, container culture, and topiary. Read more about hedges on our blog creating a hedge.
  • I grow to: I’ll reach a maximum of 50cms high by a metre wide
  • Where to place me: Full sun please, but I will tolerate part shade
  • How far to space me: I need 60cms of elbow room
  • Soil Conditions: I’ll grow in most well-drained soil types and I like a bit of mulch.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

    We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
