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.

Wintergreen Boxwoods can grow in full sun but prefers 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.

The Wintergreen Boxwood grows in full sun to part shade. It adapts 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. 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.

Winter green box woods.

Priced fairly. Well packed. Promptly delivered. Healthy plants on arrival. Would likely use The Planting Tree again in the future.

Healthy little shrubs

Just received the boxwoods. Bought 8 to make a natural fence around my shed. They came well packaged and healthy. I hope they grow into nice mature boxwoods.
