Buxus microphylla var. koreana 'Wintergreen'

Sold in two gallon container.
The Wintergreen Boxwood is a selected form of Korean boxwood that remains green all winter even in the coldest areas, yet will also grow well across the whole country. For low hedges, clipped balls, shorter pyramids and any other shapes in the garden or in pots, this is the ideal boxwood to choose. It has small leaves in a beautiful mid-green color that will be fresh and green all year round, making the perfect edging for your beds, in sun or shade. One of two clips a year is all it needs to look great, or for something different, plant some without clipping and let them grow naturally into an attractive dense green mound. The tiny yellowish-green flowers are fragrant too, although they are inconspicuous and occur mostly on unclipped plants.

  • Best boxwood variety for coldest areas
  • Fresh green foliage all year round without winter bronzing
  • Easily clipped into hedges and specimens
  • Grown well in sun or shade
  • More pest-resistant than other boxwoods


Almost any location, in sun or shade, will be perfect for the Wintergreen Boxwood, so you can have hedges anywhere you need them. It will grow well in any regular garden soil, and benefits from mulch and regular fertilizer. Clip from spring to fall and you will always have perfect neat plants. The Wintergreen Boxwood is also more resistant to pest than other varieties of boxwood.
