The Green Tower® Boxwood is an amazing, slender and upright variety of the American boxwood, that is perfect for tall but narrow hedges in limited spaces, or for planting to screen walls and fences. It is also perfect for narrow specimens in the garden, and as a feature in pots. It needs no trimming because it naturally grows dense and slim, reaching 8 to 10 feet in about 7 years. It stays between 1 and 2 feet wide, and it becomes denser and more solid as it grows. It can also be trimmed for perfection, becoming very tight and perfectly formed. It grows well in zones 5 to 9, and it never bronzes in the winter cold.

  • Tall and slender without trimming
  • Reaches 9 feet, but only 2 feet wide
  • Stays green all through winter
  • Resistant to root rot disease
  • Grows 15 inches a year

The Green Tower® Boxwood grows in full sun or partial shade, in almost any well-drained soil, from sand to clay, and acidic or alkaline. It is easy to grow, and this variety is resistant to root rot, a lethal disease that can kill boxwood plants easily. Other pests or diseases are rare or not very important, so this plant will thrive in many different situations. It can be trimmed between spring and early fall, if you want to. This superb variety is the top choice for taller hedges in limited space.
