Baby Gem Boxwood

Adorable Evergreen with Versatile Features


Baby Gem Boxwood, Buxus microphylla var. japonica 'Greggem', is a broadleaf evergreen. Use a few as edging plants, or plant one in your perennial bed for some definition. You can even use these in containers for your patio or front porch. They’re small enough, and hardy enough, to work in many locations in your yard.


Boxwoods are certainly ornamental, but did you know that they’re also a historic shrub? Boxwoods are thought to date back millions of years, and in ancient times the Romans used them to accentuate their own famously beautiful landscapes. Once you own one of these wonderful shrubs, you’ll understand why their popularity is so long-lasting.


Your Baby Gem Boxwood is an adorable, little shrub with fine-textured foliage and a small stature. Its dwarf nature makes it ideal for those small spaces in your yard where you’d like an evergreen presence. It may be a “baby” Boxwood, but its dark green nature will certainly create a large presence in your landscape…particularly through the cold, winter months.


Baby Gem Boxwood will grow up to 3 feet in height with an equal spread. It has a compact, rounded form and is both heat and drought tolerant. Baby Gem Boxwood is generally a low-maintenance shrub so won’t require much care from you. It can be left to grow naturally beautiful, or trimmed to fit your needs…including being amenable to topiary designs.


Boxwoods have been around for a very long time, and have certainly been an extremely popular shrub for landscapes. When thinking about an evergreen for your own yard, it’s hard to overlook this adorable, little gem. Baby Gem Boxwood will meet your needs, even in the smallest spaces, and present a pleasing picture in your yard for years to come.

Cannot plant anything around here without being deer resistant. They do not seem to bother the Baby Gem boxwood.
