Lively Emerald Foliage Offers Vibrant Texture
Why Green Velvet Boxwood Shrubs?
Appearing almost velvety to the eye, the Green Velvet Boxwood Shrub makes a rich impression. 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.
Plus, it grows in a natural sphere. Add one or multiple shrubs to an existing garden, or grouping. They're perfectly suited to enhance both casual and formal settings, and the Green Velvets are easygoing...with pest resistance, disease resistance and sturdy, adaptable growth that even stands up to deer. Urban smog, changing climates, and drought won't harm it either.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location where your Green Velvet 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 and well-drained soil.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole the same depth as the root ball and twice as wide. Place the Green Velvet upright into the hole, ensuring it is straight, and begin to back fill 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 deep layer of mulch around the base of the boxwood, extending 12 inches past the foliage.
2. Watering: Water the Green Velvet Boxwood deeply to ensure the roots are getting adequate moisture. The soil should stay moist but not saturated - generally, this requires watering once or twice weekly. 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: These can be pruned in a rounded shape or allowed to grow naturally. Pruning should only be done after any danger of frost has passed in the spring.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
