The Buxus MI Faulkner, commonly known as Faulkner Boxwood, is a compact evergreen shrub renowned for its versatility, resilience, and aesthetic appeal. Belonging to the Buxaceae family, this cultivar is a popular choice for landscaping, hedges, topiary, and ornamental garden designs across the United Kingdom.

Characterized by its dense, bushy habit and small, glossy green leaves, the Buxus MI Faulkner presents a neat and tidy appearance year-round. Its foliage retains its vibrant colour even during the winter months, making it an ideal choice for providing structure and interest to gardens throughout the seasons.

This cultivar is prized for its slow growth rate, reaching a height of around 90 centimeters (3 feet) and a spread of approximately 60 centimeters (2 feet) over several years. Its compact nature makes it suitable for small gardens, borders, and containers, where it can be easily shaped and maintained.

One of the key attributes of the Buxus MI Faulkner is its adaptability to various growing conditions. It thrives in both full sun and partial shade and can tolerate a range of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils, provided they are well-drained. Additionally, this cultivar is relatively drought-tolerant once established, although regular watering during dry spells is beneficial for optimal growth.

In terms of maintenance, the Buxus MI Faulkner responds well to pruning, allowing gardeners to sculpt it into formal shapes or maintain its natural form with minimal effort. Pruning is typically carried out in late spring or early summer to avoid disrupting new growth and to promote dense foliage.

While the Buxus MI Faulkner is generally resistant to most pests and diseases, it is important to monitor for common issues such as boxwood blight and spider mites, particularly in humid conditions.

Overall, with its compact size, year-round interest, and ease of care, the Buxus MI Faulkner remains a choice for gardeners seeking a versatile and attractive evergreen shrub to enhance their outdoor spaces in the UK.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
