          I placed a large order (48) for these boxwoods. They came mostly consistent in size, but there were a few oddballs. Hopefully, a growing season will take care of that. I wasn’t expecting each boxwood to be individually wrapped. It took a long time and was quite a bit of work unboxing each plant. Each box was also huge, creating a lot of unnecessary waste. Overall, I would buy again.

          Great shurb
          All looked great. One had the top stem broken off but should grow out.

          They are cute healthy plants but all had damage from shipping. I hope they survive. Boxes were crushed. The nursery is not to blame but the carrier obviously didn’t care.

            Beautiful Green Velvet Boxwood
            This Plant arrived so fast and in great shape. I am so impressed with the on-line ordering process for plants and can’t wait to add this shrub to my collection. I will definitely be ordering more!

              Easy to buy, easy to love
              Ordered a boxwood for a planter I needed to fill, online was the only option and I didn't know what to expect- had I known it would be so easy without sacrificing quality, I would have been buying plants online all along! Delivery was quick, boxwood arrived in great shape. Couldn't be happier with this purchase!

                Great Buy!
                Our new boxwood arrived in just a few days. What a great buy! The plant has a bunch of new growth. We are excited to add it to our landscape!

                  Amazingly large, healthy boxwood!
                  You won't have ordered enough of these -there are that good. I have never seen such a full boxwood available anywhere. Boxwoods are a favorite of mine, not only because deer are NOT fond of eating therm - they have a lot of other reason why they are the ideal bush for any yard. They are freeze resistant - everyone in Texas is buying boxwoods this year after losing everything but their boxwoods to the big freeze. If you look closely - you will see a boxwood that was planted months before this beauty. Boxwoods live for decades - they love to be trimmed and shaped.

                  Fantastic live plant
                  I feel just a tad bit beyond embarrassed at the fact that When I had initially requested this item, I totally and unequivocally thought that it was a fake plastic plant. When the package arrived with a fairly tall box stating that it was a "Live Plant" , I was actually pretty stoked. I had turned my annual beds into perennial beds, and had been buying plants all summer for plants to help with their new backyard status. The plant was shipped in an absolute perfect manner. The plant inside had been secured inside a special shipping box, wrapped in heavy duty plastic. the plastic helped keep the moisture in the soil as well as keep the soil in the pot that it was shipped in. It's going to make a wonderful addition to my perennial garden!

                  boxwoods are my go-to
                  Boxwood plants are evergreen and the foliage isn't sharp or overbearing. I am really particular when it comes to the plants in my yard, and boxwoods are one of my favorite go-to plants. They look great year-round, they're very durable, easy to maintain (a simple trim/shape as you like) and there are many varieties to select from. This velvet boxwood has small leaves, grows to about 2-4 feet tall & wide so is a nice green addition to a smaller space. It doesn't flower so you won't see a lot of pollinators attracted to it, but it will add a lot of green especially if you have harsh winters without a lot of evergreen around you. I live in zone 7, and my boxwoods perform very well. This plant arrived very healthy and was easy to plant in an existing bed in our yard.

                  The swiss army knife of the landscape
                  Boxwood's are the Swiss army knife of the garden. They are easy to grow, not requiring much except water when they are dry and pruning when necessary. Boxwood's are sort of plain, leafy and green but they fill in areas where they placed if allowed to grow. Boxwood's are also great for hedges and shaping or topiary. My boxwood arrived very green and healthy, the box was slightly damaged but the plant was unharmed. The plastic pot was well wrapped and kept the soil from spilling out and helped hold in the moisture. I gave the plant a good watering and left it outside for a couple of days to get acclimated and finally got it planted. This boxwood will eventually help cover the bottom of my yard light pole. I highly recommend boxwood's for any landscape.
