Description

The Green Velvet Boxwood is a dream come true for urban yards! Sculpt to your heart's content or leave this pretty evergreen shrub alone depending on the look you want. Sit back and relax. This boxwood pollution tolerant as well as pest, deer, rabbit, and disease resistant!

A fairly slow growing shrub that will reach between 2-4 feet in height and width at maturity, the Green Velvet Boxwood is ideal for small yards. This boxwood is covered with vibrant, light green foliage that darkens as it ages. The leaves of this boxwood are petite and smooth. You don't have to worry about prickly needles with this evergreen bush! If left untrimmed the Green Velvet has a natural rounded shape. When they are well trimmed they will hold shape for quite some time. Boxwoods often only need pruned one or twice a year. The Green Velvet Boxwood stays green throughout winter.

Green Velvet 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. Once established this boxwood is drought tolerant. However, watering during dry periods even in winter will keep your Boxwood at its best.

Even beginners will look like professionals with the low maintenance Green Velvet Boxwood! Order yours today. This popular Boxwood sells out fast!

How To Care

Green Velvet 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 plants 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. 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 pollution tolerant as well as pest, deer, rabbit, and disease resistant.

Landscape Ideas

The Green Velvet Boxwood makes the ultimate low hedge. Trim for clean curves and sharp lines and angles. Leave unpruned for a natural look. Plant a single shrub or groups. Define corners with a group of 3. Boxwoods are great for containers. Accent your deck, patio, porch, or entryway for an upscale look. Boxwoods are generally shaped into spheres. Step outside of the sphere and into the box...try squares and rectangles for a showy look that will catch everyone's eye! Sculpt your landscape with boxwoods. The options are endless! Go formal. Go casual. It's all up to you!

Great quality

I am very pleased with not only how well packaged and protected my shrubs were but also with the condition and shape that the shrub is in. I can be very particular when it comes to shopping for plants at our local nursery. I would buy from the planting tree again if I could not find what I was looking for at my local nursery.

Nine boxwood purchased. Eight excellent. One damaged in processing.

One boxwood was damaged when I opened the box. Box was not damaged. Must have been damaged in packing.
