Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of  USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5a, where this Boxwood variety is not reliably 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

A soft-textured Boxwood that will grow in sun or mostly shade, 'Green Mountain' is a cross between English boxwood and Asian boxwood. It was designed to look great while withstanding both cold temperatures and drought in USDA Zones 5-9. It naturally grows in a dense, pyramidal form with little if any pruning necessary. That said, it responds well to pruning or shearing to an even tighter formal shape. Foliage is a deep grey-green with lighter color new growth in spring. We planted one of these on either side of the entryway to our office, where they receive morning sun with afternoon shade, and couldn't be happier with their look and performance.




Landscape & Gardens Uses

Growing naturally in a pyramidal form to about 4 to 5 feet in height and 3 feet wide at the base, the Green Mountain Boxwood is a perfect choice to accentuate entryways. It is also useful as a distinctive specimen or grouping in landscape borders and home foundation plantings or as a formal clipped hedge. Excellent for pots, planters and other containers. A fine addition to formal gardens, English gardens, and cottage gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  2.5 feet apart for solid hedge;  6 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

The Green Mountain Boxwood is very easy to grow and requires little if any pruning to keep its natural pyramidal form. It will grow in a wide range of soils but prefers a moist, well-drained loam in full sun to part shade. In our gardens, we have one growing in almost full shade under a large oak tree and it's doing fine, though might not be quite as dense as those growing in part shade or sun. When grown in full sun the foliage takes on a bronze cast in winter. To avoid damage to new growth that can be stimulated by pruning, cease pruning two months prior to the average first-frost date in your area.
