  • Regular price $6.00


This hardy boxwood variety is your ideal accent or hedge plant in flower gardens, formal gardens or any landscape due to its versatility, dense foliage and ease of maintenance!

The Japanese Boxwood features bright green, oval-shaped leaves that are somewhat larger, and slightly lighter green, almost having a yellow appearance, than the hybrid boxwoods most commonly seen in landscapes. This shrub makes an excellent medium to large hedge, and is quite simple to grow.

Like all other boxwoods, the Japanese boxwood prefers cool, moist, well drained soils as well as a small amount of shade to shield its leaves from the sun. The shrub has a good growth rate, but slightly less cold hardy than other commonly used boxwood varieties.
