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.
