This group of extremely cold-hardy Canadian-bred boxwoods features plants with rich, green foliage and an attractive shape. They are best for growing in the Upper, Middle, Lower, and Coastal South. They are more susceptible to leaf miners.
Best for medium hedges: 'Green Mountain' grows 3 to 5 feet tall and wide and forms a dense cone.
Best for foundations: 'Green Velvet' is wider than it is tall, has matte green leaves, and is very cold hardy. It responds well to pruning.
