Also known as the True Dwarf Boxwood, this versatile English evergreen is the most popular and widely grown cultivar of all the boxwood shrubs. Because of its slow-growing nature, this shrub remains low and compact, presenting a wide range of uses for any landscaping design.
This dense shrub’s shape is naturally rounded and is surprisingly soft to the touch. Bright green leaves that are round and glossy are tightly packed onto each thin branch, making the English Boxwood’s foliage practically impenetrable.
English Boxwood responds well to pruning and can be sheared into any desired form, including topiaries and even bonsai art. This low-growing hedge is ideal for edging and borders along pathways or around flower beds and can be grown in a container for deck or patio décor.
Whether the setting is formal or casual, the English Boxwood performs like a superstar, pairing well with any other landscaping accents. Our Red Knockout Rose Trees stand out in spectacular fashion when encircled by this brilliant compact hedge. It looks magnificent bordering a walkway or driveway.
Elegant style and grace combined with Boxwood’s hardy, resilient and trouble-free nature make this shrub a winner. These attributes earned the English Boxwood top honors, which is why you’ll find this evergreen rubbing elbows with royalty in select palace gardens around England.
This Dwarf Boxwood performs well in full sun to partial shade and adapts nicely to most any soil type as long as it’s well-drained. Once established, it needs little water to keep it happy. Deer don’t care for nibbling on Boxwood, and it is unbothered by pests or diseases.
A small amount of annual pruning, fertilizing and mulching will be more than adequate to keep your shrub happy and healthy all year long.
