Baby Gem Boxwood is a dwarf form of the popular and hardy Japanese boxwood. It grows into a dense mound of green, with tiny leaves, and a naturally-dense habit. because it grows so tightly, it needs less clipping than other boxwoods – a wonderful way to have a neat garden but reduce the time you spent clipping. It can be used to make dwarf hedges anywhere between 1 and 3 feet tall, or it can be clipped into rounded or conical forms. With its natural dense growth and compact foliage, it makes a lovely evergreen for foundation planting without any clipping being needed at all – the look is softer and more natural. This hardy plant will grow in zone 4 without bronzing in winter, and is the ideal pick for anywhere you want a smaller, easy-to-care-for evergreen.

  • Perfect compact form with less clipping needed
  • Dense green foliage and small leaves
  • Ideal for hedges and rounded forms
  • Hardy to minus 30 without bronzing
  • Perfect dwarf evergreen with many uses in the garden

Baby Gem Boxwood will grow in sun or partial shade, in any soil that is not always wet. It benefits from organic material in the soil at planting, and as a mulch over the roots, conserving water and protecting them. Because it is both faster-growing and dense, it will grow into a good-sized plant sooner, and need less frequent trimming to keep it neat and tidy. Keep it fertilized, and water during dry periods. Some simple care will reduce the risk of pests or diseases and keep your plants always healthy and looking good.
