Buxus x Green Velvet 12-8-12Today’s special is our Green Velvet Boxwood. These are growing in 2.5 inch containers and are 4 to 10 inches tall and very nicely branched for $4.16 each.

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers sun-dappled part shade and moist, sandy loams with a slightly acidic to slightly alkaline pH. Tolerant of pruning and shearing. Avoid cultivating around plants because they have shallow roots. Roots appreciate a good mulch (1-2″). Thin plants and remove dead/damaged branches annually to improve air circulation. In USDA Zones 5 and 6, this boxwood is best sited in a sheltered location which protects it in winter from strong winds and full sun. Carefully remove heavy snow accumulations as quickly as practicable to minimize stem/branch damage.

‘Green Velvet’ is a broad-mounded, compact form (B. sempervirens x B. microphylla var. koreana) of boxwood that will mature to 2-4′ tall and as wide. Opposite, glossy, dark green leaves are evergreen. Pale green flowers are inconspicuous. Sempervirens in Latin means “always green”. Zones 4 to 8.
