American boxwood

The boxwood is a great landscaping plant with dense evergreen foliage.  Traditionally, this shrub is used as a hedge. However, in olden times the shrub had other purposes. The ancient Romans used the heavy, fine-grained wood for elegantly-crafted boxes. Women would store valuables in the boxes. Also, artisans used boxwood to make combs and musical instruments. Today, the American Boxwood Society is a great source of information on everything having to do with boxwoods.  Therefore, to connect with them, click this link.
