bonsai boxwood trees are created from the great Buxus genus of evergreen leaf wide.

When we hear the words “evergreen” We often think of conifers as pines and junipers.

Buxus are broad evergreen leaves and shrubs include European, Chinese and Korean boxwood. (In Europe they are known as “box”.)

The small leaves and trunks of hardwood make it particularly popular among beginners bonsai.

As you can see on this page, the more experienced artists also respect this species.

The harlandii Buxus

Many different Buxus varieties have been used to create bonsai over the years.

The Buxus harlandii is just one favorite.

It is especially known for the stunning deep cracks of the bark, which add to the appearance of age.

They are not as readily available as other varieties. When it finds one, it will be recognized immediately.

boxwood Bonsai Basics

This plant is easy to care for, however the roots tend to be very dense and need frequent watering. Traditional pruning bonsai trees is perfect for boxwood, because they need thinning even hedges as common.

One of the comments of John is especially important. By cutting cut the stems , not the leaves. Although “pruning coverage” will make its fullest bonsai, doing it correctly will make it a treasure.
