Evergreen Shrub with Creative Possibilities

The Winter Gem Boxwood, Buxus microphylla japonica 'Winter Gem', is an evergreen shrub. It would make a lovely backdrop for a perennial bed or a creative stand-alone accent in a floral bed.  

The key word with the Winter Gem Boxwood is versatility. Your Winter Gem Boxwood is a petite shrub that only grows to about 4 feet in height, but packs a lot of value into that little package.

Full, compact and naturally rounded, your Winter Gem Boxwood is lovely in its natural state. However, you can also make it into anything you like.  Prune it into a conical shape, a boxy hedge or indulge your topiary skills to make it resemble a small giraffe. The possibilities are endless.   

Your Winter Gem Boxwood begins the spring with a light green tone, its small oval leaves gradually changing over to a rich dark green hue that is glossy in the sunshine. 

Your Winter Gem Boxwood’s possibilities are only as limited as your creativity. Leave it to its natural beauty, prune as a hedge or create a one-of-a-kind attraction for your yard. Whatever you prefer, the Boxwood will certainly meet your expectations.  

* Cold Hardy
* Low Maintenance
* Easy to shape
