  • Grows as an evergreen, maintaining its dark green foliage year-round
  • Makes a great choice for foundation, border, low hedge, specimen, accent, container, or formal garden plantings

  • Grows naturally in a globe shape
  • Will be delivered at a height of 3"–6"

Wildlife Value

Boxwoods contain a toxic alkaloid that makes them unpalatable. As a result, deer and other wildlife tend not to eat them.

History/Lore

Through the years, the boxwood has been associated with formal gardens. Boxwood parterres and hedges can be seen in many of the great gardens of Europe and America. Colonial Williamsburg, especially around the Governor's Mansion, offers wonderful examples of formal boxwood use.
