Boxwoods that grow densely, vigorously, and have incredible disease resistance? Bring them on! When it comes to impressive botanical breakthroughs, NewGen® Freedom Boxwood (Buxus 'SB300' PP32421) is the whole package!

This fabulous specimen keeps its emerald green coloring all year round. It's an excellent choice to add to beds that could use a little pop of color while the perennials are sleeping!

One of the best attributes of Freedom is its fast-growing nature. While other boxwoods might make you wait a couple of years before getting to your desired size, this overachiever isn't nearly as pokey.

Your shrub is sure to be visited by plenty of beneficial pollinators. They love its tiny yellow flowers that bloom each spring.

Sure, these look lovely in your landscape but have you ever added a boxwood branch or two to your indoor bouquets? They'll add texture without taking away from the colors of the blossoms it's accompanying.

Don't wait, order your NewGen Freedom Boxwood today to complete your gardening projects!

How to Use NewGen Freedom Boxwood in the Landscape

Anyone who says they can't think of a way to use boxwoods in their yards simply isn't trying.

Plant in a row at the front of your property to clearly define where your yard starts. It'll make a great border without hiding the rest of your gardening masterpiece behind it.

Or you can move the row closer to your house or flank your entryway. They're just the formal introduction to your house you're looking for.

This vigorous rounded cultivar also fits nicely into your flower beds as an accent. Just like their clippings in bouquets, they'll add texture without overpowering.

Try planting a shrub in a container on either side of your entryway. Raising boxwoods off the ground in a container planting is a great way to catch the eyes of those passing by.

Use one or two in an island planting in formal and residential landscapes. Freedom can tie any garden dream together!

#ProPlantTips for Care

We love a low maintenance, happy plant. Who doesn't? With just a few simple instructions, you can have the happiest boxwood with very little effort.

Make sure to plant Freedom somewhere it can bask in the sun's rays all day long. It loves full sun! Like most other plants, it also appreciates well drained soil.

Because it is such a quick grower, you'll find yourself having to prune it back to the exact size you're looking for once a year or every few years. When that happens just wait for its first flush of growth and grab some sharp shears.

Often gardeners will replace Winter Gem or Wintergreen with Freedom because of its tolerance of boxwood blight and resistance to boxwood leafminer. Yet another thing you won't have to worry yourself about.

Consider adding a layer of mulch around your boxwood as well. They love the protection it gives against the hot summer sun along with the moisture it helps retain.

NewGen Freedom Boxwood is the answer to your gardening problems! Order yours for your landscaping aspirations today!
