The Arctic Emerald Boxwood is a fast-growing, vigorous evergreen that soon passes 6 feet in height, but stays just a couple of feet wide. It is perfect for specimens and accents, or for taller hedges. Its small green leaves stay rich green all year round, with no winter bronzing. It can be grown as a natural upright bush, or clipped into columns, cones and pyramids. Use it for hedges to separate parts of your garden, or plant it in a tub for a strong vertical feature on a terrace or beside a doorway

  • Narrow, upright column or pyramid of green
  • Reliable year-round color with no bronzing
  • Very fast growing, and soon reaches a substantial height
  • Perfect for specimens and narrow hedges
  • Good cold resistance in zones 4 and 5

The Arctic Emerald Boxwood should be grown in full sun, partial shade, or light full shade. It grows well in any well-drained soil, and it should be watered regularly during hot and dry weather. Use fertilizer and/or organic mulch for the best growth, and trim in early summer and early fall to keep it always looking neat and green. Its vigorous growth means it rarely suffers from pests or diseases, and this variety lacks the unpleasant smell some people notice with boxwood plants.
