Product Details

The Green Velvet Boxwood is a dream come true for urban yards!  Sculpt to your heart's content or leave this pretty evergreen shrub alone depending on the look you want.  Sit back and relax.  This boxwood is deer, rabbit, and pollution tolerant as well as pest and disease resistant!

A fairly slow growing shrub that will reach between 2-4 feet in height and width at maturity, the Green Velvet Boxwood is ideal for small yards.  This boxwood is covered with vibrant, light green foliage that darkens as it ages. The leaves of this boxwood are petite and smooth.  You don't have to worry about prickly needles with this evergreen bush!   If left untrimmed the Green Velvet has a natural rounded shape.  When they are well trimmed they will hold shape for quite some time.  Boxwoods often only need pruned one or twice a year.  The Green Velvet Boxwood stays green throughout winter.

The Green Velvet Boxwood makes the ultimate low hedge.  Trim for clean curves and sharp lines and angles.  Leave unpruned for a natural look.  Plant a single shrub or groups.  Define corners with a group of 3.  Boxwoods are great for containers.  Accent your deck, patio, porch, or entryway for an upscale look. Boxwoods are generally shaped into spheres.  Step outside of the sphere and into the box...try squares and rectangles for a showy look that will catch everyone's eye!  Sculpt your landscape with boxwoods.  The options are endless!  Go formal.  Go casual.  It's all up to you!

Green Velvet Boxwoods grow in full sun to part shade. They adapt well to a variety of well-draining soils.  Water deeply twice weekly when newly planted to help the roots grow properly.  Once established this boxwood is drought tolerant.  However, watering during dry periods even in winter will keep your Boxwood at its best.

Even beginners will look like professionals with the low maintenance Green Velvet Boxwood!  Order yours today.  This popular Boxwood sells out fast!

How To Care for your new Green Velvet Boxwood

Green Velvet Boxwoods grow in full sun to part shade. They adapt well to a variety of well-draining soils.  Water deeply twice weekly when newly planted to help the roots grow properly.  Add 2-3 inches of mulch to help your new plants stay moist.  Once established this boxwood is drought tolerant.  However, boxwoods will perform best when watered once weekly during dry periods, including in winter. Bronzing can occur when the roots are dry and this evergreen is exposed to sun, wind, and freezing temperatures.  Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer to give your boxwood a boost.  Pruning can be done anytime of the year.  However, it is best to avoid pruning in late fall as pruning will stimulate new growth that will be too tender to survive the freezing, winter temperatures.

This boxwood is deer, rabbit, and pollution tolerant as well as pest and disease resistant.


Planting Directions

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.

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.
