Compact Evergreen is Easy to Grow & Adaptable
The tough and robust Wintergreen Boxwood (also known as the Korean Boxwood) is an extremely adaptable shrub that makes a fashionable addition to any landscape.
Your Wintergreen Boxwood will give you lush green foliage when young, which slightly darkens with age. Oval leaves are petite and dainty, lending a smooth-textured look and feel to this decorative shrub.
This boxwood is commonly shaped into round spheres, square cubes, or ovals. It's a very slow growing plant, so when trimmed, they keep their shape for a long time.
When grouped, they add an elegant sense of style and grace to most any garden plan.
They also look fantastic in decorative pots used for accent on a terrace or patio.
When grown in rows, the Wintergreen Boxwood becomes a hedge that can be neatly shaped to create an appealing border or foundation accent. You'll often see this hedge used as a backdrop for lower-growing perennials.
If planting space is at a premium, the small size of the Wintergreen Boxwood provides a perfectly proportioned design element for a sophisticated look. It only grows up to 2-4 ft. tall, so it can fit almost anywhere. Flank your home's entryway or add a few around your patio. The possibilities are endless.
The Wintergreen Boxwood flourishes in growing zones 5-8. It keeps its vivid green color, even during winter months when other Boxwoods can yellow. It's adaptable to most soil types, and resists disease, pests and even deer!
This is a great choice for beginner gardeners because it's so easy to grow... but its also used by professional landscapers because it looks so good!
