Boxwood - Green Velvet

Buxus Kor.x semp. ‘Green Velvet’

Green Velvet Boxwood is a broadleaf evergreen shrub which grows in a naturally round habit. The small round leaves are glossy green, taking on a very slight bronze green during the winter months. Plant in a sunny or partially sunny location, avoiding sites exposed to winter winds and snow removal. Boxwood prefers cool, moist well-drained soil. Bark mulch is beneficial. Fertilize in spring, if desired. Green Velvet is a superb selection for borders, low formal hedges, knot gardens, containers, and topiary.

    Can Boxwood Green Velvet grow in partial shade?

    May 5, 2021, 10:30 AM

    Yes, Green Velvet Boxwood can grow in part shade

Adaptable in terms of pH.  Best growth is in moderately moist, cool, fertile soils.

Does not require pruning, but tolerates if well.  Prune in spring before new growth begins, if desired.   Keep watered after pruning to minimize browning.  This is also an effective strategy to minimize winter damage to foliage in cold areas.

Tolerates heat and drought once established.
