Uses Notes: 

Makes a great low hedge or border for formal plantings. Add it to any garden for winter interest.

Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers moist, well drained soil. Tolerates heavy pruning but is not necessary. Little care is needed, but may be pruned to shape as desired in summer.

This new variety of boxwood is a cold hardy, dense globe that requires little if any pruning to form a low, dense, thick hedge. Shiny dark green leaves maintain good winter color. Use NORTH STAR as a low-growing hedge, or even to create the borders of a formal herb garden. It's a beautiful evergreen that will provide four seasons of enjoyment in the landscape.
