The Baby Jade™ Japanese Boxwood is a new super-compact variety of the hardy Japanese boxwood. It is the answer when you want the neat look of boxwood hedges and globes, but don’t want the endless trimming that is usually needed for that. Left to grow naturally this plant will reach perhaps 3 feet tall and wide, forming a neat mound or tidy row without clipping. It is both cold and heat resistant, thriving in zones 5 and 9 where traditional English boxwood fails, and it grows well everywhere else too.

  • Tiny, rich green leaves on a compact plant
  • Compact upright to rounded form for hedges and specimens
  • Stays small and neat with little or no trimming needed
  • Good winter color and hardiness in zone 5
  • Vigorous and easy to grow

Full sun or partial shade will suit the Baby Jade™ Japanese Boxwood perfectly, and it grows in a wide range of light conditions. It does best in rich, moist but well-drained soil, but even in poorer soils, it grows well. Trimming is not needed for a neat look, but for super-neat, trim once a year, or every second year, in spring after the danger of frost has passed. Pests and diseases are possible but rarely serious, and deer leave this plant strictly alone.
