Baby Gem Boxwood

Buxus microphylla var. japonica 'Gregem' PP#21159

This fine-textured evergreen grows to a maintainable size of 3 feet, resembling a little green muffin. It's an exceptionally compact boxwood excellent in smaller gardens. Densely branched, the foliage is abundant and adds a distinctive note to the landscape, retaining its color in winter. Their moderate growth rate and deer resistance is ideal for carefree edging, and are tolerant of dry soils once established.
