Recommend the smaller size
I order both the Qt size and gal size plants. Both came healthy. The Qt size is just a tiny bit smaller than the gal size, and price is roughly half. In the image attached, left is gal size and right is qt size.

        It took me a week.or so to get them in the ground and they are still doing great. The packaging was perfect for them. I did take them out and give them some water and sun as soon as they got to me, but I bet they would have been okay in the box for a few more days. I love them!

        Total Deception - So disappointing!
        I didn't receive 1 Gallon Sprinter Boxwood. I received teenie-tiny Sprinter Boxwood replanted in a one-gallon container. With that kind of deception, I now question whether I received the intended variety. Who even knows what type boxwood I really received. Sad! Will never order from Home Depot again.

          Good quality but small
          I just received an order of 9 gallon-sized Sprinter Boxwoods. They were healthy and well packed for the most part. One box was pretty badly smashed and another boxwood was tipped up in its compartment. But none were damaged. I'm pretty underwhelmed by the size of the plant relative to the container. I was expecting more based on examples I've seen of the Proven Winner Sprinter gallons in various YouTubers' videos. I knew I was taking a chance purchasing these unseen, but can't help but wonder if I would have saved a bunch of money and gotten something similar by ordering the quarts. They are just big enough that I'm not going to return them. Hopefully they are as fast growing as claimed!

                Beautiful Boxwoods!!
                These arrived beautifully packaged!! Well done Home Depot! I ordered 12 and all of the pots were perfectly moist upon arrival and carefully packed so as not to hurt the plants during transport. No broken stems or evidence of disease. All of the plants looked very happy and had new growth. Yes, they are small (the Proven Winner's typical 4-inch shrub container), but these are a fast growing, winter-hardy boxwoods, so I have faith in them! Definitely a fair price, given the quality of the plants.

                  These are way smaller than they look in the photo. For this price, I was expecting it to be much, much bigger. I hope this shrub grows fast. Lesson learned...don't buy plants online. It's more like 1 gal...not 3.

                    Bought four (4) of the Sprinter Boxwood shrubs. They were delivered in a single box April 23, expertly packed and in great shape. Re-planed them directly.Now two weeks later, they have settled and grown extensively. The pic is from when I planted it; it has grown at least 30% since! Never thought I'd buy online plants, but this have convinced me it works!

                    Sprinter Boxwood (Buxus) Live Evergreen shrub, Green Foliage, 4.5 in. Qt. This is an outstanding plant. It can be grown in either sun or shade or anywhere in between. I'm familiar with "Proven Winners" products from Four Star Nursery, you always get a well developed root ball to insure great results. The foliage is beautiful and a very Hardy shrub from zones 5 through 9. I have other boxwoods, but the Buxus has best looking foliage.

                    I'm in the process of renovating our yard and decided to order one of these Sprinter boxwood shrubs and a 3-gallon blue castle holly. After receiving them, I wouldn't order any other brand of shrubs online besides Proven winners. Both shrubs arrived in perfect condition, not damaged or dehydrated whatsoever! Proven winners has perfected plant shipping in my opinion. PACKAGING My plants shipped overnight in specially designed boxes that hold the plant upright and secure PROS *Beautiful well-shaped plant *Absolutely perfect packaging *Beautiful green foliage *Healthy *Reasonable price I can't wait to take this plant outside in the spring and find it the perfect place to grow. I love this plant and highly recommend this product. 5 out of 5 stars

                    I was a bit surprised at the small size of the bush for the price. It is really full of green foliage even when shipped in the middle of the winter, and the root ball was very full and appears healthy. I have purchased plants like this before and had luck with rapid growth based on the health of the plant. So for now - I'm taking into consideration that boxwood's grow really well and quickly so I'm hopefull that it will fill out quickly. But I don't think its a very good value at the full price.

                    The Sprinter arrived healthy and well-packaged (although it looks very small -- at only 7 inches tall), and the planting directions were clear and easy to follow. The root system was impressively well developed. The label says it will grow to be 2-4 feet in height. However, if mine grows to 4 feet, I will need to prune it. I love that this boxwood is deer-resistant, as we have a deer problem. Our boxwoods have survived--not so the azaleas.

                    Healthy evergreen
                    Boxwoods have always been a staple for gardens and it's hard to imagine how they could be improved. Apparently this one is fast growing, which should be nice for shaping it over the years. The plant came well-boxed and healthy and it survived the winter. I have learned that even with healthy plants, I try to plant them right away and use the recommended fertilizer from Proven Winners.

                    Bright green color
                    Boxed up and packaged securely and safely as all Proven Winners plants seem to be. Holes in the box for "breathing" too. The plant looks healthy and alive even though it had to sit in the box for 5 days before I had a chance to open it up. I am planning to plant it in a large pot on my porch. I chose this shrub because of it's vibrant color and easy-care.
