    Green Mountain Boxwood

    More about the Green Mountain Boxwood...

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Green mountain boxwood is a cross between English boxwood and Asian boxwood that is designed to look great while withstanding both cold temperatures and drought in USDA Zones 5-8 (maybe 4-9?). Over time, the Green Mountain Boxwood will grow to about 5 feet in height and 3 feet in width, and will naturally grow into a pyramid shape with no pruning required. That being said, it responds very well to shearing which makes it a really great choice for formal hedges or to trim it into all sorts of cool shapes. 

    Uses

    Green Mountain Boxwood is useful as a single specimen, in small groupings, shrub borders, as a clipped formal hedge, and home foundation plantings.

    Culture & Care Tips

    The Green Mountain Boxwood is very easy to grow in locations that provide sun or partial shade and, preferably, where it will be protected from drying winds. It will grow in a most any soil type but especially likes rich, loamy, well-drained but moist soils. In warmer climates, the Green Mountain Boxwood will prefer frequent watering during summer drought. If you grow it in a pot check soil moisture more frequently. Mulching with a 2-inch layer of shredded wod mulch helps to retain soil moisture during the summer months. That being said, you don't want the soil to remain consistently soggy as this can cause problems with the roots.

    These plants I ordered were for my large containers around my pool. They look great with the creeping jenny under them. The plants came well packed from Gardener Direct and in great shape.

    Hi Mark - Thanks so much for taking the time to provide us and visitors to Gardener Direct with your review. We're glad to hear that the Boxwoods arrived safely and in great shape, and that they look nice combined with the Creeping Jenny plants. We absolutely love Creeping Jenny and have it planted as a groundcover in many areas of our own gardens. We have the Green Mountain Boxwoods planted on either side of the front door to our offices. Great, low maintenance Boxwood. Let us know if there's ever anything else we can help you with. We're at your service!

    Received fast. Just as described.

    Hi Theresa - Thanks so much for taking the time to provide a review. Future visitors to Gardener Direct will certainly appreciate it. We're happy to hear that you were pleased with the quality of the boxwood. We have two of the Green Mountain boxwood planted on either side of our office entrance and they've done exceptionally well over the years. A truly low maintenance shrub that stands up to the heat and the cold. They do not require any pruning to keep a pyramidal shape though we shear ours one time a year in late winter or early spring to maintain a more formal shape. A well-drained soil is best as constantly soggy soil can cause problems with the roots. Let us know if there's ever anything else we can do for you. We're at your service!

    Very Satisfied

    This plant was delivered within a few days of ordering on line. The plant was in extremely good condition and very healthy. I wouldn't hesitate to place another order with Gardener Direct.com.

    Good Growing!
