Buxus x 'Green Mountain'

 

A moderate grower, and the name says it all. This mini mountain of a boxwood keeps its conical shape with little to no attention. For that reason it is favored by those who want a unique natural touch in their yard/border or by those who wish to design and trim fanciful shapes, as this boxwood is especially suited for the art of topiary. It is your choice on whether you'd like to give your clippers a rest or a workout!

Joseph's Take

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.
