Comments: This is an excellent boxwood for colder regions of the country. It is quite winter hardy, grows very slowly and retains its globe form with dense foliage. Boxwood are shallow-rooted so be careful about cultivating around them. Mulch plants in areas of intense heat and direct sunlight. Fertilize boxwood in late winter through early spring.
