The Classic Boxwood is a popular broadleaf evergreen amongst gardeners and landscapers! They're easy to sheer and are extremely adaptable and versatile! They're not commonly seen in a pyramid form!

So you will love the conical shape of the Cranberry Creek Boxwood (Buxus x 'Cranberry Creek') that will look amazing in your yard! There's so much to love! This shrub grows anywhere from 2-3 feet in height and width, being wider at the base and forming a pointed top. This is a great size for borders or foundation covering!

This Boxwood is always green and full, and in the summer you can expect little, lighter green blooms. While you may not notice them, the little blooms are highly sought after by local bees! Known for being extremely deer-resistant, this is one of the toughest evergreens known to exist! Growing throughout USDA planting zones 5 to 8, Cranberry Creek is easier to grow than you'd think!

Planting and Application:

Plant Cranberry Creek in either a container or in the ground! Its space-saving size won't mind either way! They look great as an accent on porches or as foundation accents. The bright green color illuminates life in any yard all year round.

These are fantastically shaped shrubs that are easy to maintain in their pyramidal shape and look professionally trained! Add a small specimen in a high-end planter or as a focal point on a raised berm in your front yard!

Space 2 feet apart to create a pointed hedge or backdrop, or use Cranberry Creek as the focal point on the corners of your foundation or an outbuilding to give them a finished look! Use en masse for an easy care barrier, border, or low screen!

Even if you don't have a yard, balconies and porches benefit from these small-scale shrubs as prominent specimens that add pinpoint privacy and accent your seating areas, poolside seating, or around your outdoor entertaining areas!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Provide your Cranberry Creek Boxwood with a full sun or part shade location. They work well in either! Well-drained soils are the best option for this Boxwood shrub. Provide new shrubs with regular moisture access, but after, they only need supplemental moisture during drought and a good long drink before winter. All plants appreciate a 3-4 inch deep layer of mulch over their root system. Plant with Nature Hills Root Booster for lifelong support!

People are curious about when to trim Boxwoods, but it's easy! Simply prune your shrub after the first flush of growth in the late spring to keep that formal look. This grows naturally pyramidal in form but always looks cleaner with as little sheering. If left untrimmed, it has a classic freeform upright growth!

  • Full Sun & Some Part Shade
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Prune After First Flush Of Growth
  • Easy to Grow Evergreen Shrubs
