Product Details

Anyone whose Boxwood has suffered damage or destruction due to blight or leafminer will enthusiastically welcome this “new generation” cultivar. These round, medium-size, deer-resistant shrubs show excellent resistance to both Boxwood blight and leafminer. Ideal for foundation and formal plantings and as a dark evergreen accent in mixed borders. PP 28,888

Among the 70 species of this widely dispersed genus, you'll find some of the best hedging plants to separate garden rooms and to outline formal plantings. Dense and multibranched, they lend themselves easily to pruning early in the season, but can be kept to more informal shapes with only light tweaking. Inconspicuous yellowish green flowers appear in spring. The small, evergreen leaves are opposite, leathery, and slightly oval shaped, with a distinct odor. Boxwood prefers well-mulched, moist, cool soil in full sun or light shade, protected from winter winds and extremes.


Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: Pennsylvania, Michigan.


The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Very fresh green color

It looks more of quart size plant, very lush green and compact. not as low flat pillow shape as sprinter. Make sure to plant it to the ground or it will die in winter.

Latin Name Pronunciation: bucks'us

Boxwoods are popular landscape shrubs because they are evergreen, easy-care, and have small leaves and a dense habit that lend themselves well to shearing. They make splendid formal hedges and topiaries as well as foundation plantings. Some varieties grow naturally into upright pyramids, columns, round balls, or low mounds. Because deer avoid them, they have become a substitute for Yew, a favorite treat. Winter hardiness is a problem with some species, whose leaves turn brown from cold and reflected light from snow.

Light/Watering: Sun to partial shade, but avoid locations in full sun. Water thoroughly after planting, and then give a new plant a good soaking once a week during summer, unless rainfall is plentiful (more than 1in per week). Please note that more is not better. When in doubt, don't water.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Moist, well drained soil. We recommend against fertilizing at planting time and during the first growing season in your garden. Plants need time to settle in before being pushed to grow. Most established plants grow best if fertilized with a light hand. Here at the Farm, we fertilize shrubs and trees just once -- in early spring -- with a light but even coverage of a balanced, granular fertilizer (such 10-10-10 or an organic fertilizer).

Continuing Care: Easily sheared or pruned to shape. Protect shallow roots with a 1-2in mulch. In winter, protect from strong winds and full sun, and remove snow to prevent breakage. No serious disease problems, although Boxwood leaf miner, mite and psyllids are insect pests.
