The lime green touches on each small leaf of this smaller Korean Boxwood mature into a golden hue, then as winter approaches, Wedding Ring® Boxwood holds its evergreen color to give your landscape a break from the dull browns and tans of the late fall and winter months. You may not notice them, but the tiny flowers are beloved by bees.

The Wedding Ring® Boxwood's stunning bi-color evergreen color, 1-3 foot tall and 2-4 foot wide size, and hardy nature make this a great choice for almost any landscape throughout USDA planting zones 5 to 9!

Planting and Application:

If you're seeking an evergreen to provide a backdrop for other plantings, Wedding Ring® Boxwood will be up to the task! More than just the average evergreen, Wedding Ring® Boxwood is ornamental even by itself, but particularly lovely when partnered with other plantings.

Both lovely accenting other plants and shrubs, while shining brilliantly all on their own, Wedding Ring® works as both a single specimen or in mass plantings to best display the unique leaf coloration! One would look lovely in a container on your patio to compliment some floral blooms or plant several for a decorative border along a walkway or garden.

Shear formally for a clean-cut effect, you can also leave these evergreens in their natural rounded form, these mid-sized Boxwoods are lovely foundation shrubs, as backdrops, and will add year-round greenery for lining your driveway, or sidewalk, or create a tidy barrier around your home and garden!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Boxwood shrubs prefer moist, well-drained soil and require very little care. Preferring full to part sun, any site with ample moisture is fine for your new plantings, but once established, Boxwood only needs supplemental moisture during drought and peak summer months in warmer growing zones. It is best to mulch to keep the root system cool and moist, the evergreen foliage needs to be protected from drying winds, especially in colder growing zones. Water evergreens in the fall to help prevent windburn, and spray with wilt-stop according to package directions.

Trim Boxwoods after the first flush of new growth in the spring, or you can shear your shrub to keep that formal look. If left untrimmed, it has a classic free-form growth! This Proven Winners® Boxwood is even deer and pest-resistant!

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
