Product Details

Looking for that perfect shrub to add just a little pizzazz to your yard? We suggest the Wintergreen Boxwood. Also known as the Korean Boxwood, this small yet beautiful shrub is perfect for all yard designs, big or small.

The Wintergreen Boxwood is a slow growing shrub. It tends to grow between 2-3 inches annually. At maturity it will reach between 2-4 feet in height and 3-5 feet in width. This boxwood is covered with hardy, green foliage that becomes darker as the Wintergreen Boxwood ages. The leaves of the Wintergreen are fairly small and delicate. They have both a smooth look and feel to them as well. When other Boxwood shrubs turn yellow and lose their color in the dreadful winter months, the Wintergreen is still vibrant and green.

The possibilities are endless with the Wintergreen Boxwood. This Boxwood helps enhance the beauty of small, compact yards. They are very well suited for a hedge or low growing border for a sophisticated look. You could line your driveway or walkway to add that little bit of elegance. The Wintergreen Boxwood looks great when used as a backdrop for lower growing perennials. Maybe you are just looking for the perfect accent plant for your terrace, patio or porch. Just place the Wintergreen Boxwood in a decorative pot and there you have it, it's that easy!

Wintergreen Boxwoods could grow in full sun but prefer partially shaded locations. They adapt well to a variety of soils. If left untrimmed, the Wintergreen grows into a toadstool mushroom shape. Wintergreen Boxwoods are usually shaped into a round spheres, square cubes or ovals. When they are well trimmed they will hold shape for quite some time due their slow growing pace. Whether you are a beginner in the planting world or a professional this easy to maintain shrub adds a great look to any landscape design with only minimal maintenance.

how far from fence should you plant ?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We recommend planting 2-3 feet off the fence for ease in maintenance and pruning.
what cause the boxwood to turn brown?
reggie on Oct 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Over and under watering can cause browning. A "crunchy" feel indicates under and a soft feel indications over watering. I have seen some bronzing in boxwoods as well. This occurs in winter because of sun, wind, and cold. Keeping up on watering throughout winter helps with this.
How deep are the roots?
Pam H on Sep 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The roots will grow about the same size underground as the plant is above ground. This plant grows relatively slow and the roots are not invasive.
When and how much to trim boxwood?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can trim them at least twice a year for a hedge or 3 times a year for a more manicured look. They can be trimmed at any time of the year.
Can these be kept trim to a size of 18" high by 18-24" wide without causing harm or issues??
Ron D on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes!

Planting Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.  

 

Planting a shrub digging the hole

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

I am happy with this shrub. I ordered 8 of them for the front of our home. I removed our existing plants that our builder installed. What a mess... I planted these boxwood in a hedge and they look great. Ordering was easy!
