Boxwood - Green Velvet

Looking for a shrub with pretty, dark green foliage? Green Velvet Boxwood (Buxus x 'Green Velvet') is a cold hardy, full-bodied Boxwood variety.

First introduced by Sheridan Nursery in Canada, Green Velvet Boxwood is a hybrid that takes the best characteristics from its parents. You'll love the round leaved, rounded habit of English boxwood and the cold hardiness of Korean boxwood all rolled into one excellent selection!

This shrub never needs pruning. It will grow into a naturally rounded shape. Now, on the other hand, if you want to shear it, or prune it - go right ahead. That's the beauty of Boxwood, after all.

This evergreen will perform for you in a formal garden setting, or in a more modern landscape to give structure all year long. Lovely deep green leaves are held all year. Bright green foliage and tiny fragrant blossoms appear in early spring.

Green Velvet Boxwood is one of the best spreading forms with a beautiful rich, deep green color. Well known for hardiness, this is a relatively fast growing selection that has become the standard for spreading Boxwood in a variety of growing conditions.

This variety grows beautifully in moderate cold regions if given a bit of protection. Unlike other evergreens, this variety experiences minimal winter bronzing, so you will enjoy its vibrant color even in the cold months.
