Classic Reliability and Green Growth
Why American Boxwood Shrubs?
As American as baseball and apple pie, the American Boxwood Shrub is one of the most reliable plants you can have. For starters, you can shape it and grow it any way you like. Planted in a row, it's a spectacular foundation hedge, or you can line it in front of your porch for added privacy and year-round foliage. It responds well to pruning and can be shaped into a topiary or bonsai for deck or patio décor.
Plus, it's known for its extremely dense foliage. In fact, it can also act as a natural privacy fence. Especially since it's remains an evergreen ornamental throughout the year, with tiny pale green flowers in spring set against a bed of lovely dark green leaves that are oblong and glossy. It's a healthy specimen that performs well, even in cold temperatures.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location where your American Boxwood will receive full or partial sunlight. If you live in an area that gets very hot, they will do best when given some afternoon shade. Well-draining soil is also a must. Then, dig a hole the same depth as the root ball and three times as wide.
Place the boxwood upright into the hole ensuring it’s straight and begin to backfill the hole, watering every couple inches to prevent air pockets from forming. To help retain moisture in the soil and deter weed growth, apply a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch around the base of the boxwood, extending 12 inches past the foliage.
2. Watering: Water the American Boxwood deeply to ensure the roots are getting adequate moisture. The soil should stay moist but never saturated. Once it has established, it will need a weekly watering during periods of drought or extreme heat.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced shrub fertilizer formula such as 10-10-10 in spring, before the start of new growth.
4. Pruning: American Boxwoods respond well to pruning. During the first two years of growth, prune your boxwood to your desired shape before new growth in spring. In the following years, the tips of the shrub will need to be pruned to maintain its shape.
