BUXACEAE, The Box family
Buxus sempervirens ‘Suffruticosa’
Mini-hedge in progress.
Here is my favorite plant combination today: Blue elderberry, Overdam feather reed grass and box. It’s a day trip down back roads in the Gorge meets touring in a European rental car in early autumn. It’s spacious, sunny, dusty, relaxed. The collection could appear overexposed but the box grounds it.
This is not a theoretical juxtaposition – planting design is happening in real time here.
