Background note on the formation of the national collection of Buxus in Cuba.

Elizabeth Braimbridge Braimbridge

Resumen


In the gardens of Europe and the Mediterranean regions, the cultivation of Buxus goes back to times of antiquity. Many of the most magnificent gardens in Europe incorporate Buxus sempervirens (boxwood), usually hard-clipped into immaculate hedges and formal architectural shapes of pyramids, cubes, spirals, globes, etc., creating impressive grandeur. In today’s modern landscape and garden idiom Buxus is still in great demand to give an instant effect of elegance and permanence, despite its high market price.
