Noteworthy Characteristics

Japanese Boxwood is an attractive evergreen shrub that is most often used as a hedge. It responds very well to shearing so is often selected as a foundation shrub, planted on either side of entryway for accentuation, or as a topiary in square, round, dome, or pyramidal form. If allowed to grow naturally to its mature size it will reach 5 feet or so in height with an equal spread.


Excellent for use as a single specimen, in groupings, shrub borders, natural hedge rows, clipped formal hedge rows, mass plantings, home foundation plantings, entryways and corners, topiary, container gardens, and asian theme gardens 

Culture & Care Tips

Japanese Boxwood is easy to grow in most any well-drained soils, planters or containers. It has better drought and pest tolerance than other boxwoods. Spring flowers are insignificant, though quite fragrant. Prefers a strong half day of sun or full sun.
