I’m Roxy, the classic European Boxwood, native to Eurasia. I grow small round leaves and develop a rough bark on my trunk. I'm one of the oldest garden plants dating back to 4000BC. I am an outdoor tree, and must need the cold temperatures of winter to go dormant. Keep me in bright indirect light a few hours a day. To water, submerge my pot in water up to the rim for 20 minutes, about once every 5-7 days, or more often when very hot or dry. Keep me in temperatures between 32 and 60˚F from fall to early spring. In summer I can take temperatures up to 80˚F. Learn more about winter care here.
Age: ~14 years old
Symbolism: The boxwood was associated with Cybele the mother goddess, a symbol of fertility and regeneration.
