Baby Gem Boxwood Shrubs for Sale Online
Baby Gem Boxwoods are appropriately named, for though small, they will be the shining gems of any landscape. Baby Gem Boxwoods maintain their beautiful green color throughout all four seasons! It is common for the shiny green foliage on some Boxwoods to turn bronze in the fall, but not Baby Gem.
The plant care for these hardy shrubs is extremely simple, for these round perennials are tolerant of various conditions. These dense dark green beauties tolerate both full sun and part shade.
These plants do best when planted in well-drained soil and are fairly drought tolerant. Apply an all-purpose fertilizer in the growing seasons of spring and summer for optimal growth.
As a shorter and more compact brother of the Winter Gem Boxwood, the Baby Gem Boxwoods only grow naturally small. Reaching about 3 feet tall and wide, the Baby Gem's dense, evergreen foliage makes it perfect for shearing into a small, formal hedge. They are also ideal for defining borders and focal areas or for use as a foundation plant or natural hedge.
Because of their small stature and controlled growth habit, these compact Boxwoods are perfect for smaller gardens and compact spaces. As an added bonus, you will not have to worry about wildlife snacking on your decor, for these boxwoods are pest and deer resistant.
