Boxwood, Green Velvet


Description: Nice, small, bright green oval shaped leaves adorn this hardy little boxwood. Very dense, compact growth makes this an excellent choice for borders, and small to medium sized hedging when planted closely together. Like most of our boxwoods, this is an evergreen hybrid variety of boxwood. Likes cool, somewhat moist soil that is well drained. Recommended 2 1/2 - 3 feet spacing between plants for hedge use.
