In the Garden
Great as a border along a path or next to a building. Common Box has been a popular planting in formal gardens for centuries. Able to be pruned to almost any shape it is also one of the best suited plants for topiary.
Tolerant of most soil types this species will grow in all areas of Australia apart from the far north tropics. The plants have relatively shallow roots and are not well suited to sandy soils unless kept well irrigated. They will do well in full sun or part shade.
