If nearly indestructible is what you're after, then Green Velvet is a no-brainer! This evergreen is one of my favorite Boxwoods because of it's vibrant green leaves, and it's knack for growing in a rounded shape--so very little pruning is required to keep it looking neat. Will take sun or shade, is disease/pest free and deer don't bother it. What more can you ask for in a care-free shrub?

Versatile, vigorous and vivacious, the Green Velvet Boxwood thrives in just about every region in the U.S. It is virtually maintenance free and looks marvelous as an accent plant, border or foundation hedge.

This sparkling evergreen is aptly named; with its display of old growth in darker shades of green, and its new growth shining brightly in vivid shades of light green that adds texture, depth and dimension appearing almost velvety to the eye.

As spring arrives, tiny white flowers emerge that are elegantly attractive and fragrant. You can clip and shape these Velvet Boxwoods into plump oval mounds to add interest and energy to a mixed perennial bed.

Flaunting its naturally rounded shape with little need for pruning, the Green Velvet Boxwood is perfectly suited to life in a casual or formal situation. Plant and shape these beauties into a low hedge surrounding one of our Pink Knockout Rose Trees for an absolutely stunning arrangement.

Flourishing in full sun to partial shade, the Velvet Boxwood can be easily maintained for use in areas where space may be limited. Adaptable to most soil types, this easy-going shrub thrives with a small amount of pruning, occasional feeding and annual mulching.

Versatile Green Velvet Boxwood is pest and disease resistant and even stands up against deer. It is tolerant of urban smog, changing climates, and even drought. This hybrid shrub is equally at home in a country or city setting.

Thanks to being super hardy and requiring next to no care, our Green Velvet Boxwood is an extremely popular shrub, and sells out fast. Order yours today, while supplies last.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Green Velvet Boxwood


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Green Velvet Boxwood.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Green Velvet Boxwood gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Green Velvet Boxwood again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

i read it will grow in shade or full sun. Is this true?
A shopper on Jul 5, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, I have about 35 plants around the house, Sun and Shade, the only problem I have had is the plants came with some kind of bug and it has turned the leave brown. I had to go to the local landscape store to buy a plant doctor chemical to stop the problem.
