I planted (2) quart-sixed plants in full sun in Cleveland, OH. They have reached 2' by the third summer. Color is great over the winter. Highly recommend and I will buy more.

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 boxwood 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.Foliage InterestWinter InterestDeadheading Not NecessaryResists:Deer

Best green winter color of all the boxwoods we growBlue Heron Nurseries, Ohio, United States, 10 years ago
I bought 20 of these in pint size containers. They have been in my garden for 3 years and are still very small. They are extremely slow growers.Jill, Michigan, United States, 10 years ago
