Description:

Chosen by the Chicago Botanic Garden for outstanding cold hardiness, this resilient boxwood holds its glossy green foliage well in winter. Resembling an English boxwood in appearance, it has a uniform oval habit making it a fantastic low hedge, either sculpted or informal. An excellent foundation plant or background for perennials. Evergreen.

Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize in early spring. Prune as needed to shape.

History

Many boxwoods turn a dull bronze color in the winter. Some boxwood varieties that are prized for retaining their green color throughout most winters are Chicagoland Green® ('Glencoe'), 'Green Velvet', 'Green Mountain'.
