Boxwood, Green Velvet (Buxus Microphylla Var. Japonica Green)

by Mackey's Farm

Here's another terrific selection of boxwood that is a product of the perfect union between the tremendously hardy and profoundly compact koreana and our "common" sempervirens, renowned for its excellent leaf color whether in blazing heat or a deep freeze plunging to 20 degrees. But there's more! 'Green Velvet' boasts luxuriant foliage on its low, rounded form with outstanding pointed leaves that are simply irresistible and retain their green color well throughout the winter. If a rounded, natural shape isn't what you desire, this is a magnificent cultivar for sculpting to the shape you desire. Provide any well-drained soil, sun or partly shaded conditions and 'Green Velvet' will thrive!
