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

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, 8 years ago
