About This Product

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.

Highlights

  • Remains hardy in USDA zones 4-9
  • Plant in full sun to partial sun conditions in well draining alkaline soil. Well-draining soil is essential as Boxwoods are prone to root rot in poorly-draining soil
  • Ideal for pruning and shaping into topiaries, and allow you to make sharp, crisp edges, as well as seamless curves
  • Mature sizing: 3-5' H x 3-5
  • Water regularly during the first growing season. Once established boxwood shrubs are easy to maintain and self sufficient.
  • The Wintergreen Boxwood is absolutely perfect for borders, formal hedges and mass plantings.
  • Ships in a 2.5 qt pot with soil from the Alabama Gulf coast.
  • Fertilize in spring with slow-release granular fertilizer to achieve the best results
  • 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
  • Working on a large landscape project? Consider ordering 1-2 plants to ensure that the Wintergreen Boxwoods that are currently being shipped meet your specifications before placing the order for the entire project

    Q:This plant grow well in Los Angeles area, zone 9 ?
    by|Mar 2, 2022
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Wintergreen Boxwood can grow in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9, so it should be suitable for your climate in the Los Angeles area, which is typically considered to be in zone 9. However, when planting this boxwood in a warmer climate like Los Angeles, it's essential to provide some extra care. Be sure to choose a location with partial shade to protect the plant from intense sun, especially during hot summer months. Adequate watering and well-drained soil are also crucial for its health. With the right care, Wintergreen Boxwood can thrive in zone 9 conditions in the Los Angeles area.

      Q:do these flower or attract bees?
      by|Jul 19, 2021
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Wintergreen boxwoods do produce inconspicuous, small flowers in late spring, but they are not known for attracting bees or other pollinators to a significant extent. The flowers are typically of minimal ornamental value and do not have showy blooms or a strong fragrance that would attract bees in the same way some other flowering plants do. If you're looking to attract pollinators to your garden, it's better to choose plants with more prominent and bee-friendly blossoms.

        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.
