Baby Gem Boxwood (Buxus microphylla var. japonica 'Gregem') is a wonderful little broadleaf evergreen shrub with fine-textured foliage and a small stature. 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.
Ideal Evergreen Shrub for Small Spaces
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.
