Korean Boxwood

Regular price $15.00 Sale

Buxus microphylla var. Koreana

 Very hardy boxwood.  Excellent cold hardiness.   Leaves are much more elongated, and elliptic in shape than most other Boxwood cultivars that are commonly seen. Can also withstand the heat & humidity of the southeast.             

Foliage will bronze slightly in extremely cold areas - the more exposure & less shelter that is provided, the more intense the winter bronzing will be displayed. Makes a great hedge, foundation planting - can be sheared / trimmed to be maintained at a wide variety of heights & widths.

* Deer & Rabbit Resistant * Good resistance to: leaf miner, psyllids & mites
