Boxwood - Sprinter®

Buxus microphylla

The glossy evergreen foliage of the Sprinter Boxwood is an attractive green color year-round, has excellent hardiness and is deer resistant. The Sprinter's more upright habit makes it great for hedging. Faster growth means it will fill in more quickly than other varieties.  Use it for edging or a low hedge in formal gardens.  This boxwood selection is also salt tolerant.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!
