The history of Buxus
Buxus was already used to line roads and avenues in Roman times. It was also common to prune Buxus into topiary shapes in those days. Buxus was used to create statues in place of expensive marble, and the shrub was also cut into letters to represent the names of landowners.
The Renaissance and the Baroque periods were the high-points of Buxus topiary. Under the influence of French gardening, what started as closely shaved hedges later became exuberant, striking works of art.
