Types Of Plants Guide
Wintergreen Boxwoods have a medium to slow growth habit that makes them perfect for a low maintenance hedge or border. Wintergreen tends to be smaller than their cousin the Japanese Boxwood. These evergreen bushes look great all year round with fresh lighter-colored leaves in spring that will fade into a uniform green with summer. Boxwoods are noted for their high tolerance for harsh conditions and their ability to withstand heavy pruning.
  • USDA Zone 5 - 8
  • Full sun to part shade
  • Easy to grow/maintain
  • Evergreen bushy shrub that will provide uniform color throughout the year
  • Water regularly until established

  • Ships from Alabama - Customers beyond the South Eastern United States should consider placing orders from Fall to Early Spring to avoid heat damage during transit

I placed two orders of 10 shrubs each about 2 weeks apart. The first order was satisfactory, plants about expected size and packaged well (3 stars). The second order was poorly packaged and plants were HALF the size of the previous order for the same price (1 star, poor value). Plants were all in good shape with decent root systems, but half-sized plants for the same price was very disappointing. Will stick with local purchases from now on.
