Does all species of Buxus grow berries or flowers in the winter?

  • Your plant (in the other question) is not a Buxus: Buxus has opposite leaves, your plant has alternate leaves. The leave forms are similar to normal Buxus, but many Ilex (not the wild European one) have similar leaves. – Giacomo Catenazzi Nov 6 '19 at 10:43

Buxus flowers are rather insignificant; their seeds are in an not-very-noticeable fruit that quickly dries to a capsule. Here's an example. Note that this is a close-up of the flowers. If you're looking for a broadleaf evergreen with showy fruits, then you'd be better off with an Ilex.
