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.
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.
This photo of Yugi Yoshimura working on a Buxus harlandii show was taken in 1973.
the same tree today (shown above) is located at the National Arboretum in Washington, DC

Kingsville boxwood by Rodney and Charlie Clemons
As with so many plants the names of pictures may be confused. Is it a common name? Or is it the scientific name? Rodney Clemons is known for its boxwood “Kingsville”. I asked for the name.
“Kingsville is called Buxus microphlla var.” Kingsville “However, this is where the problems begin …. many plantsmen (including Henry Hohman) call this Buxus Microphllia var. Compact .
“Henry Hohman Kingsville Nursey in Maryland introduced” compact “to the nursery industry in the 1900s I would go with” compact “and let ‘kingsville’ is considered as part of the common name “
-. Rodney Clemons
to add to the confusion, there are several types of appearance Similarly, as the “dwarf Morris.”
All these varieties of small leaves make buenatemas, and are decorated in a very similar!
the bark is usually mild and often color almost white.
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.
John Geanangel has published an easy to understand
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.
