The African Boxwood (Myrsine Africana) is a small-leafed dwarf tree that can grow to a height of 6 to 8 feet in nature. It is a sub-tropical tree that can tolerate temperatures down to about 25 degrees, and must be protected from the cold in colder climates. It will grow with direct sun, or in semi-shade. More information below the photos.
With adequate direct sun will produce purple berries, and its deep green leaves will show reddish purple edges which give it a striking appearance. Its rough bark, even at a young age add to its desirability as a bonsai subject.
