The Green Pillar Boxwood grows rapidly into a slender column of green, up to 9 feet tall, but only a foot or two in width. It is perfect for a striking specimen in a bed, or to mark the corners of a terrace with a formal touch. Grow it in planters or boxes for a great look, or use it for a narrow screening hedge, where horizontal space is limited. This variety is cold resistant, and hardy to zone 5. It normally doesn’t brown in winter, so it really is green all year round. Unlike other boxwoods, this one grows naturally upright, so it will not become wide, even if you never trim it – a super-easy accent plant for every garden.

  • Upright narrow column of green all year
  • Ideal for specimens in planters or beds
  • Makes a perfect narrow screen
  • Easily grown and cold resistant
  • keeps its form without clipping

The Green Pillar Boxwood will grow in almost any well-drained soil, from sand to clay. It benefits from the addition of organic material when planting, and as an annual mulch, and it has some drought resistance once it is established. Plant it in full sun or partial shade. Feed regularly for the fastest growth and greenest leaves. This variety needs no trimming to stay narrow and neat, but an occasional trim will keep it perfect. In areas with heavy winter snow, permanent staking is recommended to protect your tree from falling under the weight of snow.
