Korean Boxwood is the top choice boxwood for colder areas, because it is hardy through zones 4 and 5, and it grows well across most of the country. It forms an attractive mounded evergreen bush, even when left unclipped it will only grow 3 to 4 feet tall. With clipping it can be kept as low as 12 inches, ideal for a beautiful edging along a path or around a garden bed. It can easily be turned into balls, cylinders, pyramids and other geometric shapes, to add interest to your beds. In Asian gardens it is clipped into irregular mounded forms, and it is an ideal addition to an Eastern-themed garden design. It can also be used in pots, alone or surrounded by annual flowers.

  • Top boxwood for coldest areas
  • No winter damage in zone 4
  • Easily clipped for dense growth
  • Grown well in sun or shade
  • Good pest resistance

Korean Boxwood will grow in any well-drained garden soil. Keep it well-watered during dry spells, and mulch over the roots to keep them cool in summer, prevent weed growth, conserve moisture and prevent root damage from digging. It will grow in sun or light shade, so it can be planted almost anywhere in your garden and it will thrive. It is more resistant to pests than other boxwoods, and this popular plant is the number one pick for boxwood lovers everywhere.
