Product Overview

Boxwood Baby Gem is a very compact boxwood reaching a maintainable size of 4 ft. H x 4-5 ft. W. Its small compact tendencies make it ideal for smaller gardens, borders, and small hedges. This variety of boxwood performs exceptionally well in winter keeping its color better than traditional boxwoods. Baby Gem Boxwoods are deer resistant and tolerant of dry soils once established.

    The shrub arrived healthy and is doing well. However I bought 4 of the same shrubs last year and one died over the winter. Much to my disappointment Home Depot would do nothing about it forcing me to replace it at my expense.

    Ten healthy plants that are thriving. Very good looking, and in a few years I'll have a nice border.
