Green Velvet Boxwood is the perfect boxwood choice for round specimens or hedges all across the country, but especially in colder areas where traditional English boxwood is damaged in winter. This hybrid variety has the tough genes of the Korean boxwood to help it survive cold winters without damage, and always looks fresh and a rich green color in every season of the year. It can be left unclipped to naturally form a dense, rounded shrub about 3 feet tall and across. It can be clipped into round balls of any size, for planting in pots or in groups in the garden. It can also be planted in a row to make a dense, evergreen hedge anything from 12 inches to 3 feet tall.

  • Hardy boxwood variety for colder areas
  • Natural dense, rounded shape
  • Perfect for clipped specimens in the garden or in pots
  • Ideal for traditional boxwood hedges
  • Easily grown, hardy and trouble-free

Plant your boxwoods in a sunny or partially-shaded area of the garden. It will grow in almost any garden soil that is well-drained. Water regularly when young, but established plants will be unaffected by normal summer dry periods. It has no serious pests or diseases, and clipped plants are normally pest free. Use a fertilizer in spring for the richest and densest growth, but this is a plant that will grow well with minimal care.
