Resists Boxwood Blight- Extremely Disease Resistant• Very Easy to Grow- Low Maintenance and Disease Resistant
• Compact and Dense Boxwoods Keep their Shape
• Extremely Adaptable- They Grow Almost Anywhere!
Popular with Landscape Architects Because they Don't Need Constant Care
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. You get 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.
Trim it to Any Shape... And it Stays That Way!
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.
These Boxwoods Look Great Anywhere
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.
Fits in Tight Spaces that Other Boxwoods will Outgrow
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!
