Description

Looking for that perfect evergreen shrub to add just a little pizzazz to your yard? We suggest the Wintergreen Boxwood. Also known as the Korean Boxwood, this small yet beautiful shrub is perfect for all yard designs, big or small.

The Wintergreen Boxwood is a slow growing shrub. It tends to grow between 2-3 inches annually. At maturity it will reach between 2-4 feet in height and 3-5 feet in width. This boxwood is covered with hardy, green foliage that becomes darker as the Wintergreen Boxwood ages. The leaves of the Wintergreen are fairly small and delicate. They have both a smooth look and feel to them as well. When other Boxwood shrubs turn yellow and lose their color in the dreadful winter months, the Wintergreen is still vibrant and green.

Wintergreen Boxwoods can grow in full sun but prefers partially shaded locations. They adapt well to a variety of soils. If left untrimmed, the Wintergreen grows into a toadstool mushroom shape. Wintergreen Boxwoods are usually shaped into a round spheres, square cubes or ovals. When they are well trimmed they will hold shape for quite some time due their slow growing pace. Whether you are a beginner in the planting world or a professional this easy to maintain shrub adds a great look to any landscape design with only minimal maintenance.

How To Care

The Wintergreen Boxwood grows in full sun to part shade. It adapts 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. 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.

Landscape Ideas

The Wintergreen Boxwood helps enhance the beauty of small, compact yards. They are very well suited for a hedge or low growing border for a sophisticated look. You could line your driveway or walkway to add that little bit of elegance. The Wintergreen Boxwood looks great when used as a backdrop for lower growing perennials. Maybe you are looking for the perfect accent plant for your terrace, patio, or porch. Place the Wintergreen Boxwood in a decorative pot and there you have it, it's that easy! The Green Mountain and Baby Gem Boxwoods are also great alternatives.

Boxwoods

Boxwoods: I installed new foundation shrubs and planted 40 three gallon Wintergreen Boxwoods, and four three gallon Green Mountain Boxwoods. These are planted on the street side of the new paver walkway, and add elegance to the new installation. Additionally, the Boxwoods help provide a path to keep foot traffic off the lawn and other future perennials I will be installing in the front yard next planting season. These plants are thriving weeks after installation. Ordering User Interface: I found the Plantingtree.com website easy to use. I was able to search and filter for various plants quickly. The images were very good, and the information for each plant was well organized and presented methodically. I was able to make selections and move through the checkout process rapidly. I was able to request specific shipping dates and/or special instructions during the check-out process. Value: My experience with Plantingtree.com is that their pricing is very competitive, and you know you will receive healthy, high quality uniform plants for any installation. Shipping: During the online ordering process, I was able to specify specific ship dates which Plantingtree.com used to send the plants at the dates requested. The plants were shipped in a timely manner; mine arrived within a day or two after they shipped. When they arrived, the packaging kept them safe and hydrated, so they were in great condition on arrival. Health After Planting: I had multiple orders of assorted plants, which were all installed between August and early November. It is late November at the time of this review, and all my plants are thriving. Health after installation has been great. Customer Support: Customer Support for Plantingtree.com was outstanding. I had to update the number trees I purchased several times and they were helpful in ensuring that I was able to receive plants of the same size for a large installation. The team was very personable and truly wanted to ensure a great user experience. Other Recommendations: All the plants I received from Plantingtree.com were in excellent condition and I have few recommendations for purchasers to ensure long term plant health: select plants that work for your growing conditions; do site prep work before plants arrive; open your shipment of plants immediately; water immediately; plant as soon as possible and use Biotone Starter Plus to get them a great start; stake your young trees; use biodegradable soft ties when staking; mulch your plants to prevent weeds and reduce amount of watering required, and water according to directions adjusting if necessary (i.e. warmer than usual fall).

Wintergreen boxwood

Shipping was fast. I admit I was skeptical about ordering a live plant through a shipping process. However, I was very happy with the result. Plant was delivered in excellent condition, soil was moist and plant was as I would have picked out myself.
