Instead of using pruners, I usually just break off the candle on a pine in order to keep the needles that remain intact.

Can you please help me identify this plant? I bought it in our local nursery--I was told it's Korean boxwood. Evergreen with leaves no bigger than an apple seed. Originally it was a topiary with 3 huge balls(bought it 20 years ago). I decided to change its look and pruned it drastically rooting all the cuttings for bonsai. I can't find any information about it online. Please help!
