The Boxwood for Cold Climates• Grows further north than most boxwood varieties
• Naturally rounded shape- no pruning needed!
• New growth displays bright green foliage
• Popular in groups of five, or when planted in rows
The Green Velvet Boxwood retains the upright, rounded shape you'd expect from a boxwood on it's own, with little to no pruning from you.
This evergreen shrub boasts deep green, glossy leaves all year, making it attractive in all four seasons.
In the spring, you'll enjoy its tiny white blossoms, which are actually quite fragrant (a rarity with boxwoods).
Green Velvet Boxwoods can be cultivated in full sun to partial shade, and in just about any type of soil or growing condition.
Maturing to a height of 4-6 ft., it is a popular choice for hedges, border plantings, and edging.
Professional landscapers love planting them in groups of three or five. It's an attractive way to add a foundation shrub to your garden or landscape.
It is very resistant to pests, diseases and smog... even deer leave it alone! This is the ideal boxwood for rural and urban areas alike.
Hardy from zones 5-8, it can be grown almost anywhere in the country with ease.
The Green Velvet Boxwood has quickly become one of our most popular evergreen shrubs. Be sure to order yours now while they're still available!
