Perfect Dwarf Boxwood Forms a Deep Green Low Hedge

The Wee Willie Boxwood (Buxus sinica var. insularis “Wee Willie”) was introduced in 1990 as a true dwarf. It never grows bigger than two feet high or wide.

Do you want to line a pathway with a hedge you can step over? Wee Willie can do that. Do you have a zero-lot line property but want something formal and green in the front yard? Wee Willie fits the bill. Can you spit a watermelon seed from one side of your yard to the other? Wee Willie nestles into the smallest garden landscape with ease.

Despite being so “wee”, this little boxwood rarely shudders at harsh winters. The leaves stay emerald green year round, shockingly beautiful in the snow. Wee Willie boxwoods are really tough-as-nails plants, needing no pruning or special attention once they’re established and providing an interesting texture wherever you plant them.

Whether your yard is the size of the White House lawn or the size of a postage stamp, Wee Willy will provide a crisp, never-think-twice-about-it hedge.

* Emerald Green Leaves
* Dense, Deep Green Low Hedge
* Very Cold Hardy

Nice size Review by Theresa
Too many times I've bought something like this boxwood at a local big box garden store, brought it home, planted it & had it die for whatever reason. This arrived full and thick. So far, it is doing great. Not sure what the difference is but I'm a believer. I'll be buying from Nature Hills again.
Perfect Size Review by Annie
The Wee Willie is beautiful! It's the perfect size bush to plant in front of a porch. Anchors it without blocking the view, and it never needs pruning.
Easy to frow Review by Rosie
In the several years I have had my wee willie boxwoods, I have never had to do any thing except water it.
color Review by Fanny L
I keep planting more of these every year as I adore the green color. So far they seem very hardy.
