Not very big and I thought rather pricey. Maybe 10-12" tall, 14" at best. Healthy and quite full, but small for the price. Figure how slowly boxwoods typically take to grow, if you're looking for "instant landscaping."

My sister bought your shrubs, at least 25 of them, and eight of them died. Do you stand behind them?

Meh. Although the bush was very healthy and seems to be surviving it's planting, it was quite small for a 2.25 gallon pot. For the cost, I think I'd look around to get a "Wintergreen" at a lower price point. I couldn't afford to do a lot of these. All bushes received this year have been of excellent health.
