How To Care

Winter Gem Boxwoods grow in full sun to part shade. They adapt well to a variety of well-draining soils. Water deeply twice weekly when newly planted to help the roots grow properly. Add 2-3 inches of mulch to help your new plant stay moist. Once established this boxwood is drought tolerant. However, boxwoods will perform best when watered once weekly during dry periods, including in winter. Bronzing can occur when the roots are dry and this evergreen is exposed to sun, wind, and freezing temperatures. This Winter Gem is one of the first to green back up though. Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer to give your boxwood a boost. Pruning can be done anytime of the year. However, it is best to avoid pruning in late fall as pruning will stimulate new growth that will be too tender to survive the freezing, winter temperatures.

This boxwood is deer, rabbit, and pollution tolerant as well as pest and disease resistant.
