Deer Resistant IconRock Garden Icon

Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs

A full-bodied boxwood well-suited for dense, low hedges. Foliage retains its rich green color throughout winter. Vigorous, rounded form if not sheared. A wonderful evergreen that will provide year-round, cold-hardy color and structure in the garden.


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Plant 'Green Velvet' in full shade to part sun, in a well-drained area. Boxwoods are tolerant of pruning and shearing, but avoid cultivating around this plant because they have very shallow roots. Remove dead and damaged branches annually to improve the air circulation. Plant in a sheltered location to protect it from cold winters and strong winds.
