Boxwood 'Winter Gem' 7 Gallon

Boxwood 'Winter Gem' 7 Gallon

Buxus microphylla spp.

An excellent evergreen shrub for creating small hedges, 'Winter Gem' is among the hardiest of the small-leaved boxwoods. Its rich green foliage acquires a golden bronze hue during winter, and then is one of the first to become green again in spring. It makes a wonderful addition to formal gardens, and provides year-round interest. Plant in well-drained, amended soil. Water well after planting; maintain 1? of water once a week the first year. Little pruning needed; shapes itself nicely. Remove dead branches trunk suckers or shear any time. When necessary, prune in spring to early summer. Fertilize in early spring, mid-summer and fall with an acidic fertilizer. Follow label instructions. Mulch 2? to suppress weeds, retain moisture and protect against extremes of soil temperature. Wrap in burlap or spray with Wilt-stop to protect from winter desiccation.
