Plant Features

Buxus 'Green Velvet' Boxwood stands as a testament to lush resilience and elegance in the realm of evergreens. This compact boxwood boasts a broad-mounded form, maturing to a manageable height and width. Its glossy, dark green leaves present a velvety texture, with older growth bearing deeper green hues and new shoots showcasing vibrant, light green tones, offering a layered, rich impression.

Naturally evolving into a spherical shape, the Green Velvet is versatile, seamlessly fitting as a standalone or in groupings, elevating both casual and formal settings. What sets it apart, however, is its tenacious nature. It remains unfazed by urban smog, varying climates, and drought. Even deer and common pests steer clear of this robust shrub. Yet, care is advised post-pruning, which should be undertaken after the last frost to prevent tender shoots from late frost damage. Its shallow roots benefit from mulch protection and limited cultivation to prevent inadvertent damage. Ideally, a location safeguarded from harsh winter winds and direct sun will ensure its optimal health, even though it showcases commendable resistance to bronzing. For those seeking a blend of visual allure and enduring strength, the Green Velvet Boxwood emerges as an unparalleled choice.
