There are 70 species of the genus Buxus that are collectively known as boxwoods. Some are very small, growing only inches tall. Others, such as the American boxwood, can reach heights of up to ten feet. Most of the smaller boxwood shrubs typically have a very dense texture composed of very small, tight foliage, which makes them ideal for formal garden design.
