Product Description & Reviews

Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Florida Foliage. Trays of fully rooted 2" Winter Gem Boxwood (Buxus Microphylla Japonica) shrubs. An excellent evergreen shrub for small hedges. Among the hardiest of the small-leaved boxwoods, the rich green foliage can acquire a golden bronze hue in cold winter zones, but is one of the first to become green again in spring. Makes a wonderful addition to formal gardens, providing year-round interest. This is the classic hedge plant. Its dense, evergreen growth makes it perfect for shearing into a small, formal hedge. Ideal for defining different spaces in the garden or for a tidy foundation cover-up. It is especially lovely against red brick. Use as a partition to divide your front yard or driveway from your neighbor's. Also beautiful as background foliage. Creates lovely topiaries, particularly in cone shapes if planted where it snows. An excellent plant for parterres and hedge mazes. Keeps its color over winter. 'Winter Gem' is a round-shaped cultivar that is relatively vigorous. It tolerates a wide range of sites and uses. New foliage emerges a lime-green color and transitions to a deep, glossy green. It has a tendency to bronze when exposed to direct winter sun but the bronzing will quickly disappear in spring as temperatures rise and as new growth emerges. 'Winter Gem' is very similar to the cultivars 'Wintergreen' or 'Faulkner'. Deer resistant. Winter Gem Boxwood should be pruned each year in late winter to early spring to maintain desired shape. Use hand pruners or shears. Additional lighter prunings may be necessary in early to mid-summer, depending on the desired look and vigor of the plant. 'Winter Gem' tolerates more radical pruning if the plant has outgrown its desired size. Thinning is not necessary on this cultivar. Winter Gem is very resistant to boxwood leafminer and very tolerant to boxwood blight.

Much more hardy than other boxwoods, it will stay fresh and green all winter, even with temperatures falling to minus 20. If you want boxwood hedges, balls and other clipped shapes, or just want a naturally-dense and rounded evergreen shrub, this reliable plant will give you what you want.
