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

Special Attributes

The Sunburst Golden Variegated Boxwood is a cold and heat hardy dwarf featuring dainty little green leaves edged in yellow on a conical form that is excellent for low hedges and containers. When left to grow naturally without pruning, Sunburst Golden grows somewhat slowly to 24-30 inches tall and 18-24 inches wide. With shearing it can be kept half that size.




Landscape & Garden Uses

It's smaller size makes the the Sunburst Golden Boxwood an ideal choice for an accent, low hedge or in groupings in smaller garden spaces and pots, planters and other containers. It responds very well to shearing into formal shapes, which are a distinctive note in the landscape, or into low hedges in landscape borders, along walkways, or in home foundation plantings. A fine selection for Asian or English gardens, formal gardens, or container gardens
 
Suggested Spacing:  15 inches for solid hedges;  36 inches or more for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Sunburst Golden Boxwood is easy to grow in most any well-drained moist soils. It will tolerate dry periods when established and likes full sun but will tolerate some shade as well. In our gardens, we've found it to have better drought, heat and pest tolerance than many other boxwood.
