I believe that Buxus Sempervirens is European Boxwood as far as Africa not America Boxwood, most boxwood used in the East Coast of the USA is Korean Boxwood as it is hardy to zone 4.

Troy Rhone Garden Design
American boxwood is a common name of "Buxus sempervirens". Common names reflect the common terminology of everyday life. Most American Universities refer to "Buxus sempervirens" as Common boxwood or American Boxwood. The entire reason we needed Latin/scientific names for botanical life is because one plant might have fifty common names "derived from common everyday life"-which is the actual definition of a common name.

No, they are 'Emily Bruner' hollies.

Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Formal Parterre Gardens Rule the Landscape
Louis XIII was a huge proponent of parterre gardens, and they peaked in popularity under his reign at the Palace of Versailles. His head gardener, Jacques Boyceau, was instrumental in further defining the "rules" for creating a parterre. Today, incorporating seating areas makes the formal garden more appealing.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: French Garden Style
Design the planting beds. French style is a study in geometry. Decide on the shapes you want for the planting beds, then make sure they're clearly defined. Edging these traditional parterres with low boxwood borders is a classic approach.

This formal garden could quite easily be recognized as just that! The hedges are manicured in such a unique design, and everything is perfectly symmetrical. No flowers are in sight, but the green theme is just as striking. The high hedge gives it that private and secluded air which suites the formal, sophisticated design.
