Questions & Answers

How tall do these boxwood shrubs grow?

Asked by: Stann
2-3 feet tall.
Answered by: Reviewer123
Date published: 2018-10-11

Can this plant be a 24"-32" square? Or does it have a strong mounded habit?

This is the perfect size for what I need (width-wise). However, I have a surviving shrub which is a perfect square naturally. It would be nice if they both were. Do you have a recommendation of a plant that would naturally make a 32" square (about 12" tall naturally).
Asked by: Scarlette
It has a mounded habit, but you could trim it into a 24" x 24 " square

This hardy little plant arrived in the sturdy cardboard shipping sleeve which is excellent for protection as well as ventilation. The simple design uses cut outs which push in and hold the pot inside securely while allowing oxygen to enter. By simply bending these out, the pot is released facilitating unpacking when it arrives. Proven Winners uses a unique potting method as well, The root ball is enclosed in a drawstring plastic bag, ensuring that the dirt and roots are kept moist until planting. Simply remove the tape securing the string to the pot and plant. This small boxwood plant arrived in a very healthy state, leaves all green and I planted it immediately. It is evergreen and deer- resistant growing to 2-3 feet high/wide. Perfect as a hedge or in a container. It is small, so be patient as it will take a few years to mature more fully.

The North Star Boxwood arrived healthy and well-packaged (although it looks very small -- at only 6 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 only 2-3 feet in height, so will not need pruning. I love that this boxwood will do well in either sun or shade and is deer-resistant. We have a deer problem. Our boxwoods have survived--not so the azaleas.

I ordered the 4.5 qt. small shrub because I recently read that when planting in the Fall it's best to plant a smaller size shrub (or tree or flower, etc) as it will survive the winter season well and really flourish in the Spring when it comes back to life. Apparently it's okay to plant late into the Fall season (according to your location) and, in fact, actually better in the long run as the plant will thrive and be healthier than if planted before summer and have to endure the hot summer weather while trying to get established. I continue to praise Proven Winners product each and every time. I'm happy with every single plant I've received and everything in the yard is doing really well. Again I suggest provenwinners.com for a wealth of information about all types of plants.
