Buxus x 'Green Mountain'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-9b  Find Your Zone >

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of  USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5a, 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

A great Boxwood for partial shade to almost full 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 grows naturally to form a dense, pyramidal form with little if any pruning necessary. That said, it responds well to pruning or shearing to an even more 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 an entryway. It is also useful as a distinctive specimen or in groupings in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. It's also a great choice for pots, planters and other containers of 14 inches or more in diameter, where it also serves well as a small, outdoor Christmas tree during the holiday season.

Spacing:  2.5 feet for solid hedge;  5 feet or more for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

The Green Mountain Boxwood is very easy to grow and requires little if any pruning. It tolerates a wide range of soils but prefers a moist, well-drained loam in full sun to part shade. That said, we've found that Green Mountain looks and does best with some afternoon shade or all-day lightly filtered sun or dappled shade. We have one growing in a spot near a large shade tree that is now almost full shade. The plant is doing fine though it doesn't appear as full as those that get more sun. When grown in full sun the foliage turns bronze in winter. To avoid damage to new growth that would be stimulated by pruning, avoid pruning prior to the last frost in spring and cease pruning two months prior to the average first-frost date in fall.
