Narrow, upright and columnar. Large dark green foliage. One of the narrowest growing of the boxwoods and easy to maintain. Ideal for a relatively fast growing very narrow hedge or background planting in sunny or partly shaded areas. Requires a minimum of care to maintain its form.
We have grown and tested dozens of varieties and cultivars of boxwood since the early 1940's. The ones we currently list perform exceedingly well in this region, even in our open fields. They also have proven resistant to deer browsing. All will tolerate some shade where they tend to grow more open-branched and less dense. Winter color of most boxwood is typically bronze when newly planted. When properly grown, foliage is nearly as green in winter as in summer and plants are tolerant of low moisture. An ideal hedging plant, very tolerant of frequent shearing and shaping.
