Grace Hendrick Phillips Dwarf Boxwood
Buxus microphylla 'Grace Hendrick Phillips'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-9b  Find Your Zone >

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of  USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a, where this Boxwood is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Grace Hendrick Phillips is a true dwarf boxwood grown for its appealing habit and beautiful foliage. It mounds and spreads very much like some of the dwarf Japanese hollies, such as 'Soft Touch'. Its growth rate is slow enough that it does not outgrow the landscape but fast enough to be used as a primary plant in many landscapes. It is one of the highest rated plants in the National Boxwood Trials based on its "cosmetic appeal and grower friendliness."




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a rounded top mounding form to 12 to 24 inches tall and wide, the 'Grace Hendrick Phillips' Dwarf Boxwood is the perfect choice for use as a low formal hedge or border edger along walkways or for use where a low-growing evergreen shrub is needed in home foundation plantings. Also useful in pots, planters and other containers of 10 inches or more in diameter.

Spacing:  12 to 18 inches for solid hedge;  3 feet for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Grace Hendrick Phillips Dwarf Boxwood is easy to grow when planted right, and in the right spot. It adapts to most soil types and likes full sun or part shade. It prefers a well-drained soil and will only need some water during drought or prolonged periods with no rain. As with many other plants, a constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic.
