Slow growing and leaves turn bronze with freezing temperatures. Cultivation around boxwood roots should be very light or not at all because of the shallow roots. Best to mulch around the base of boxwood with pine straw or equivalent. Very popular boxwood for parterre work in the Lower South. Takes pruning quite well, although several prunings may be required annually to maintain a crisp hedge or strong pattern in the garden.
