White Flowers

    You can customize the size and shape of the Chinese boxwood with pruning. By doing so, you can have it blend perfectly with your landscape theme. Glossy green leaves and small white flowers are desirable traits of this jasmine. The flowers form into clusters and blanket the plant top to bottom several times a year. However, compared to the sweet perfume that wafts the air when in bloom, they are of a secondary benefit. Birds, bees and butterflies find the fragrance delightful, and can be admired from sun-up to sundown. A nice quality of the shrub is it blooms many times throughout the year. Upon close inspection, it bears small red berries that can be used to propagate new shrubs. Tropical regions like Florida are where the Chinese boxwood grows best.
