Hardy Boxwood with Ornamental Features

Korean Boxwood is a broadleaf evergreen shrub. These are often used massed or as a specimen plant in a formal garden. Just imagine a row of these lining your driveway as a stately welcome to your home!

Your Korean Boxwood is a compact, mounded shrub with an open habit. You’ll likely miss the tiny, greenish-yellow flowers that appear in spring, but you’ll easily notice the fragrance they emit to draw pollinators to your yard. 

The 3/4-inch, ovate leaves range from a lovely light-green to medium-green shade, their dense nature providing a full, robust appearance. The evergreen leaves shift to a yellow-brown to purplish in winter, a little added color for your autumn landscape.

Korean Boxwood will mature to about 3 feet in height with a 4-5 foot spread. It doesn’t require special care but if you prefer, you can easily shape it into precise shapes.

Deer and rabbit pose no problem for Korean Boxwood and it’s relatively resistant to the major pests that usually bother Boxwoods.  It’s not necessary to plant Korean Boxwood in a sheltered location, but it would prefer to have a protected spot from harsh winter winds.

All in all, the Korean Boxwood is hardy variety of Boxwood that will ask very little of you, yet provide an abundance of value. 

* Dense evergreen
* Purple Leaves in Autumn

Hedge Review by Doug
We moved into a new home and I needed a row of plants along the sunny side of the foundation of the house. I chose these boxwoods and am happy with the results so far. They appear to be thriving going into their second year.
Hardy Review by Beth
It is nice to have a colorful shrub that can take a good shearing and is drought tolerant. I am a busy working mom and love how easy this plant is to care for and maintain. It was suggested to plant it where it is protected from harsh winter winds and snow.
Dense Evergteen Review by Audrey
Living in zone 5 I wanted a hardy small shrub that would give color all year round. I love this boxwood since it is colorful and very dense throughout the year. Nice size too.
Easy to grow Review by Lil J
Korean boxwoods are so dense and green and they can be trimmed about any time. They are not like privet where you seem to trimming all the time. I like easy to care for plants and this is one of them.
beautiful Review by jmdrinkwine
I received my boxwood in a box nicely wrapped and looking great. I planted it immediately and it is looking healthy and lush. It has only been in the ground about a week but so far so good. I am excited to see it fill out! I planted it in my rock garden in a slightly shaded area and it seems to really like it there. Be sure to water, water, water!!
