The Green Velvet Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens 'Green Velvet') is a popular evergreen shrub that features dense, rich green foliage, making it a versatile and attractive addition to any landscape. This compact, low-maintenance plant is ideal for creating formal hedges, borders, or topiaries, and its slow growth rate makes it easy to maintain its desired shape.
The Green Velvet Boxwood is a compact, slow-growing shrub that typically reaches a height and spread of 3-4 feet. It is a hybrid between the English Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) and the Korean Boxwood (Buxus sinica var. insularis), which gives it a unique combination of the best traits from both parent plants, including hardiness, disease resistance, and attractive appearance.
This boxwood variety is adaptable to various growing conditions, thriving in well-drained soil and in full sun to partial shade. It is cold hardy in USDA zones 4-9, making it suitable for a wide range of climates. The Green Velvet Boxwood is also deer resistant, making it an excellent choice for urban and suburban gardens.
One of the standout features of the Green Velvet Boxwood is its elegant, small, oval-shaped foliage. The leaves are a deep, glossy green color that remains vibrant year-round, providing visual interest even during the winter months. The dense growth habit of the shrub creates a lush, textural appearance that can be easily shaped and maintained through regular pruning.
Due to its evergreen nature and attractive foliage, the Green Velvet Boxwood is often used in formal gardens, as low hedges or borders, or as a foundation planting. It can also be shaped into topiaries or other decorative forms, adding a touch of sophistication and elegance to any landscape.
