The Emerald Jewel Korean Boxwood is a tough and reliable variety for both cold and hot zones, staying compact and neat even if you don’t trim it. It forms rounded mounds of tiny leaves on dense branches, growing between 2 and 3 feet tall and round. Use it for accents or edging, or trim it into hedges, globes and low pyramids. The dark green leaves stay that way all year, without winter bronzing, and their small size is perfectly in scale with the compact nature of this variety. Enjoy boxwoods without the chore of trimming, and give your garden a great look. Also suitable for pots and planters in warmer zones.

  • Dense and neat even if never trimmed
  • Excellent dark-green color without winter bronzing
  • Small, neat leaves on compact branches
  • Hardy in cold areas
  • Can be trimmed into dense hedges and balls if wanted

Grow the ‘Emerald Jewel’ Boxwood in full sun or partial shade, and plant it in any well-drained soil. It grows in alkaline soils and sandy ones, with the densest growth and richest colors in richer soils that are not too dry. Established plants are drought resistant in ordinary dry summers, but do benefit from occasional watering. Feed with evergreen fertilizer in spring for 5-star results. Generally free of serious pest and disease problems, and untroubled by deer and rabbits. Trim in late winter or late spring, and again no later than early fall, if needed.
