boxwood / by Brooke

Going to start posting some of my favorite evergreens.  It's nice to have greenery that will look good in the dead of winter, especially in Cache Valley since it's always winter here.  Or at least feels that way in the middle of January with temperatures way below zero.  But I'm not complaining.  Ok, maybe a little bit.  

Moving on.  Boxwood has always been a favorite of mine.  It looks great in the summer and still looks good in the winter because it keeps its nice, green foliage.  It is also fun because you can prune boxwood and give it a nice shape.  Like here with the benches.  Think this would be fun to try.

I love the way the green breaks up the concrete.  It's a nice effect.

 

I'll be back soon with more evergreens.
