Product Description

Break Up Deep-Green Landscapes with This Variegated Stunner!

The Variegated Boxwood’s cream-and-green leaves are a breath of fresh air in monochromatic landscapes. Up close, this Boxwood Shrub's leaves are edged with mottled, delightfully-imperfect white. Further away, the shrub appears a light sage green in color, especially against darker evergreens. 

And this Boxwood Shrub's benefits don’t stop with color. This easy-going shrub is compact - only four to five feet tall and wide - so it fits almost anywhere, even in containers! 

What’s more, the Variegated Boxwood requires almost no care. While it can be pruned into sophisticated shapes for more formal landscapes, it doesn’t require any pruning at all. Even without pruning, it maintains a pleasing curved shape, perfect for planting beneath windows or along garden paths. 

Plus, this hardy and low-maintenance shrub won’t fall prey to disease, pollution, or even pests. Other than regular water and yearly fertilizing, this Boxwood can take care of itself!

The Variegated Boxwood is the perfect plant to add variety to your evergreens. Order yours today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a location where your Variegated Boxwood will receive full or partial sunlight. If you live in an area that gets very hot, they will do best when given some afternoon shade. Well-draining soil is also a must. Then, dig a hole the same depth as the root ball and three times as wide.

Place the boxwood upright into the hole ensuring it’s straight and begin to backfill the hole, watering every couple inches to prevent air pockets from forming. To help retain moisture in the soil and deter weed growth, apply a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch around the base of the boxwood, extending 12 inches past the foliage.

2. Watering: Water the Variegated Boxwood deeply to ensure the roots are getting adequate moisture. The soil should stay moist but never saturated. Once it has established, it will need a weekly watering during periods of drought or extreme heat.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced shrub fertilizer formula such as 10-10-10 in spring, before the start of new growth.

4. Pruning: Variegated Boxwoods respond well to pruning. During the first two years of growth, prune your boxwood to your desired shape before new growth in spring. In the following years, the tips of the shrub will need to be pruned to maintain its shape.
