European Box ~ Buxus sempervirens

This species can be found right in front of the school, to the left of the stairs. It is a common plant used in the landscaping industry but is primarily found in open woodlands and rocky hillsides. It's native in southern Europe, northern Africa, and western Asia. What sticks out to me about this species is that even though it can grow anywhere between 15 to 20 ft tall, I have only ever seen it less than 5 ft max, more than likely due to pruning.
