On-Sale Buxus

This could be the start of something good.

Here’s a fine boxwood (buxus sempervirens) I discovered at the local nursery this past September. Fall is a great time to buy pre-Bonsai as nurseries are looking to dump excess inventory. Typically, everything left over from the “landscaping season” is deeply discounted.

I selected this particular tree for its nicely defined twin trunk, and its impressive roots.

Here, it is shown with about 60% of the original foliage removed. It still has a long way to go – and I’m looking forward to getting it into a training pot in a few years.
