Green Velvet Boxwood
Developed at Ontario’s Sheridan Nursery, this handsome open-pollinated cross between Buxus sempervirens and Buxus microphylla var. koreana is a match made in heaven that melds the best traits of both parents: diminutive compact size, superb cold hardiness, dense vigorous growth and rich forest-green winter hues. The tight-knit, naturally broad mounding habit is neatly dressed with small, gleaming opposite leaves. Undaunted by deer, shearing and hot humid weather, aptly named ‘Green Velvet’ makes a low edging shrub, posh container specimen and a classic dark green addition to borders, parterres, knot gardens and massed plantings. Mulch, good drainage, dappled afternoon shade in hot environs plus an annual thinning for improved air circulation promise long-lived evergreen growth.
Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 3' 0" – 4' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
