Buxus Green series
Boxwood is widely used for edging and hedging. When not clipped, most are soft and billowing. Inconspicuous flowers. All are easy to grow where adapted. Extra care with watering, feeding, and controlling mites and scale will pay off in better color and greater vigor.
This group of Canadian hybrids is derived from Buxus microphylla koreana and Buxus sempervirens. They feature handsome, rich green foliage and a naturally attractive shape; they need very little pruning. All are in the 3–5-ft. range. Hardy to between –20° and –30°F (–29° and –34°C).
