Features

notes

Traditional Buxus or Box can be susceptible to the ravages of Box Moth and more recently, Fungal Box Blight has taken a terrible toll on established trees and hedges. Over the last seven years, breeders have worked hard to create a blight resistant variety and they have been extremely successful, producing three resistant varieties. This one, Skylight, is high and fast growing, with medium green leaves, making it ideal for topiary.
