As American as baseball and apple pie, the American Boxwood is one of the most relied on plants in a landscaper’s repertoire. Whether in a formal setting or a casual situation, this shrub is always up for the task thanks to its versatility.
Ornamental throughout the year, this evergreen exhibits tiny pale green flowers in spring set against a bed of lovely dark green leaves that are oblong and glossy. American Boxwood performs like a carefree superstar of the garden.
Reaching heights of 10-12 feet, with an 8-10 foot spread, and sporting extremely dense foliage, the noble American Boxwood is the ideal choice for a privacy screen to buffer any neighborhood noise.
The American Boxwood may also be used as a foundation hedge, an individual specimen or grouped in threes for accent. It responds well to pruning and can be shaped into a rounded or squared off design, and can also be container grown as a topiary or bonsai for deck or patio décor.
This Boxwood enjoys full sun to partial shade and adapts nicely to most any soil type as long as it’s well-drained. A small bit of annual pruning, fertilizing and mulching will be more than enough to keep your shrub happy and healthy all year long.
Impervious to cold weather, pest, deer and disease resistant, and oh so easy to grow…this low-maintenance beauty is one tough customer to beat.
