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.
  • 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

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.

One plant was healthy, good looking and the other was squashed to half its size but it is strong and new buds are showing so i gave 3 stars instead 4 or 5. Delivery took a bit but that is okay. I farmer-soaked them for first 24 hours so unsure if it is because of that or because they are just healthy, but they are doing pretty good. To get new buds within a week is a good sign :)

Wintergreen Boxwoods planted two months ago and doing well.
We planted the boxwoods along the street in June and they are growing well despite the heat and drought. They were to replace boxwoods that did not survive the salt trucks and neighborhood dogs. Very satisfied!

Great plants. Larger than some 5 gallon plants I bought locally. I was not sure about buying plants online, but after receiving these I will definitely order more.
