Buxus microphylla japonica 'Gregem' PP21159

 

The Baby Gem™ Boxwood is an evergreen with a full, compact, dense body that features emerald green foliage year round. Reaching a mature height and width of 4 feet, this variety is extremely versatile. Use it in your border, in mass planting, as a hedge, or even as the starting point for a topiary or living sculpture. Let your imagination lead the way...

    Joseph's Take

    I love Boxwood, most are very slow growing as this one is, so if your willing to be patient it will do what it needs to do with no trimming or any maintenance at all. A little fertilizer in the spring would be good. Boxwood loves cold weather so can grow in many climates and can be used for winter containers. 

    If you are looking to replace boxwoods that have boxwood blight, try either Strongbox or Gembox Inkberry Holly. Both are performing well in the landscape.
