Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) is native to western and southern Europe, they are slow-growing evergreen shrubs and small trees, that seldom grow up to remarkable size. The wood has a delicate yellow colour; it is very dense and even in structure and has a fine uniform grain which has given it unique value for the purposes of the wood-engraver and flute makers. Due to its very slow growth it is one of the most precious European timbers. Typical French knifes are equipped with boxwood handles!
