The Rotundifolia Boxwood is a unique variety of the American boxwood, with large glossy leaves that are rounder and deeper green than in other forms. This is the fastest growing variety of boxwood, and it can add 12 inches to its height every year, quickly creating larger hedges. It has a natural upright growth pattern, reaching 6 to 8 feet tall, and ultimately taller if untrimmed. Grow it for topiary balls, cones and pyramids, which are quick to create with its fast growth. Leave it untrimmed for a unique, less formal look. this robust plant stands out from the crowd when it comes to boxwood and fits well into any kind of garden.

  • The fastest growing form of American boxwood
  • Unusually large and round leaves
  • Excellent deep green color with a bluish depth
  • Upright form ideal for hedges and specimens
  • Easily grown in a wide range of garden conditions

The Rotundifolia Boxwood grows from zone 5 to zone 8, in full sun, partial shade and light full shade. It is easy to grow in almost any well-drained soil, and although moderately drought tolerant once established it benefits from regular watering during summer. It has few pests or diseases, and deer usually avoid it. Trim between spring and early fall and keep the base of hedges wider than the top to maintain foliage right to the ground.
