Boxwood shrubs are a staple for foundational plantings and beloved for their clean, English Garden look when pruned. Given proper care and attention, American Boxwoods can live over 100 years bringing lasting beauty to your garden.

American Boxwoods are exceptionally resistant to boxwood blight and make an excellent choice for areas where the disease has been found. This boxwood is also drought tolerant, deer resistant, evergreen, and generally pest and disease-free.

The American Boxwood does best full sun to part shade and moist well-drained soils. Best grown in zones 5 through 9, this Boxwood shrub maintains glossy evergreen foliage all year long, even in negative temperatures. That is why you will often see Boxwood cuttings as part of holiday decorations.
