Cold-hardy Wintergreen Boxwood, also known as Korean Boxwood, is an incredibly versatile and popular addition to landscape design. No matter the setting, be it formal or casual, this shrub consistently exceeds expectations.

Foliage is bright green when new, and darkens slightly with age. Oval leaves are small and delicate, lending a finely-textured look and feel to this ornamental shrub.

This evergreen beauty responds well to pruning and is commonly shaped into globes, boxes, or ovals. When grouped, Wintergreen complements most any garden design and looks fantastic in decorative pots for accent on a deck or patio.

When planted in a row the Wintergreen Boxwood becomes a hedge that can be squared off or rounded to create a neat and attractive border or foundation accent. Itís not uncommon to see this hedge used as a backdrop for showy centerpiece plants in the garden.

If yard space is limited, the compact size of the Wintergreen Boxwood provides a perfectly proportioned design element for a clean natural look. This dense shrub performs like a superstar when shaped into topiary designs or even bonsai art.

Donít hesitate to flank your driveway or walkway border with a row of Wintergreen Boxwood, as it truly gives an elegant look at a small cost. Wintergreen also pairs well to offset perennial flowers and roses for a quintessential English garden look.

Slow-growing Wintergreen Boxwood typically gains only 2-3 inches annually, maturing to heights of about 3 feet with a 4-5 foot spread. If left to grow naturally, this low-growing shrub takes on a toadstool mushroom shape.

Thriving in most regions of the U.S., the Wintergreen Boxwood even maintains its bright green color during winter months when other boxwoods can yellow. When other shrubs have lost their shine in winter, Boxwood keeps itís delightful green glow.

Adaptable to most soil types, pest, deer and disease resistant and super easy to grow--this shrub is a smart choice for any landscaping design. Boxwoods are hardy for even the beginner gardener!

It's Easy to Plant your Wintergreen Boxwood


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

what to do when boxwood turns yellow?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: This could mean a few different things. If the leaves are also drooping like they look heavy then your boxwood is being over watered. If the leaves are dry, crisping and curling upwards then the boxwood is being under watered. Wintergreen Boxwoods need an inch of water a week, and ha problems if they sit in standing water.

Check your plant closely for insects. They can also cause the leaves to turn yellow. If you see any visible bugs or signs of bugs apply seven dust or an organic pesticide to your boxwood.

If you're giving your plant to correct amount of water and there's no sign of bugs give your boxwood some acidic fertilizer.

Is it rabbit resistant?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: If a winter is harsh and food is sparse rabbits and deer will eat anything! However the Wintergreen Boxwood isn't preferred by them. I would classify it as rabbit resistant because it isn't their first choice and they will eat other plants first.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
