About the Green Mountain Boxwood

Introducing the resilient and visually stunning Green Mountain Boxwood (Buxus x ‘Green Mountain’). This evergreen shrub, originating from a cross between English and Korean species, boasts a resilient nature and an elegant presence in any landscape.

With its toxicity to deer and rabbits, it remains undisturbed in gardens, ideal for hedges or as a distinctive container plant. Its dense, upright growth also makes it suitable for formal garden settings or as an eye-catching entryway accent.

Whether adorning a formal garden or enhancing landscape borders, and creating privacy, the Green Mountain Boxwood combines durability with elegance, offering a graceful solution for those seeking a timeless, evergreen addition to their outdoor spaces.

How to grow the Green Mountain Boxwood

Growing 3 to 5 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide in its natural form, this slow-growing shrub showcases glossy, dark green, narrow-elliptic leaves, approximately 3/4" long, that retain their color throughout the winter. Its pyramidal shape makes it ideal for accents, specimens, or formal hedges.

Perfectly adaptable to various light conditions, this boxwood thrives in full sun to partial shade, though it appreciates some protection from harsh afternoon sun or winter winds. While preferring slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soil, it can tolerate a range of soil types from clay to sandy loams.

Green Mountain is an excellent choice for those seeking a low-maintenance addition to their gardens. Its minimal pruning requirements, besides annual thinning and the removal of dead branches, make it an attractive option for busy gardeners.

Notably cold-tolerant, this boxwood is a versatile option for USDA Zones 5-9, withstanding both drought and cold temperatures. Though it can adapt to different soils and light conditions, it may display a bronze hue in winter when exposed to full sun, a natural and striking attribute.

Average growth rate: 3-6"/year
