Comments: This is reported to be among the best of the variegated boxwoods. It grows quite large and produces a billowy type of plant if allowed to grow naturally, a nice feature of this boxwood. It makes a strong presence in the garden, as do most variegated plants, because of the strong contrast with the solid greens that are in most gardens. It is probably at its best if allowed to grow naturally without the customary pruning that most people practice on boxwoods.
