Previously known as 'Argentea'. It is unusual to meet the simple species, B. sempervirens , which can become a small tree after many years. It is more usually seen in one of its many forms as a bushy dense shrub, trimmed as an ornamental specimen or more often as a hedge, from 15cm (6in) high to 2-3m (6-10ft) according to variety. Varieties such as 'Argenteovariegata' withstand frequent close clipping and are favourites for intricate topiary work. Small plants are best for new hedges, as the roots become very dense and extensive, making it difficult to achieve close spacing with large plants.
