The Variegated Boxwood is a boxwood with an exciting twist! The evergreen shrub adds vibrant color to your landscape with only minimal maintenance!

Dark green with borders of light yellow to cream the leaves of this hardy shrub stand out in the landscape. This foliage is dense and will easily conceal anything you don't want to see.

With a mature height and width around 5 feet the Variegated Boxwood is great for small and large yards alike. This compact shrub is deer, rabbit, and pollution tolerant as well as pest and disease resistant. Even the novice gardener will look like a pro with this easy to grow boxwood.

This Variegated English Boxwood grows in full sun to part shade. It adapts well to a variety of well-draining soils. Once established this boxwood is drought tolerant. However, Boxwoods will perform best when watered once weekly during dry periods, including in winter.

Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer like the one we carry 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.
