The Green Borders™ Japanese Boxwood is a selected form of this hardy species, and the perfect plant for hedges. It grows just 2 or 3 feet tall, but spreads up to 4 feet wide, allowing you to create hedges with a minimal number of plants. Its horizontal branching structure means dense growth right to the ground, and plants that fill in well. The small leaves give super-dense surfaces, even with minimal trimming. Use it also for borders where you want width but not height. Grow it informally, or in undulating cloud forms. This tough and reliable plant is the perfect all-round boxwood.

  • A lower, spreading variety ideal for making hedges
  • Excellent dense form for border specimens too
  • Small leaves for that classic, dense, ‘boxwood’ look
  • Broad growth allows maximum spacing for dense hedges
  • Excellent winter hardiness in zone 5

Full sun will make the Green Borders™ Japanese Boxwood dense and solid, but it will also grow in partial shade. It is winter-hardy in zone 5, and heat-resistant in zone 9 – places where English boxwood does badly. It grows vigorously, and is generally untroubled by boxwood pests or diseases, if grown with regular water and fertilizing. Deer normally ignore it. Trim between spring and early fall, as needed, using sharp shears to avoid leaf browning.
