Dee Runk Boxwood Shrubs for Sale Online
The Dee Runk Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens Dee Runk) is an evergreen shrub that is known for its columnar habit and dark green foliage that keeps its color throughout the year. It thrives in a number of soils although it will do best in well-drained soils.
As a close relative to the Green Pillar Boxwood, the Dee Runk also boasts an upright habit that is unlike most boxwood shrubs. The Dee Runk naturally grows upwards making it an ideal option for vertical accents in the garden.

Although it has a slow growth rate, in ideal conditions, Dee Runk Boxwoods can reach 7 feet tall and 3 feet wide. They can be sheared to create a cleaner, classic look but they can also be allowed to grow wild. Pruning should be done in early spring before new growth arrives.
Not only is the Dee Runk Boxwood low maintenance, but it is also deer resistant and resistant to boxwood blight, making it the perfect foundation planting for beginner gardeners and experts alike. The deep green color, easy-care regimen, and columnar form make these pillar-like prramidal boxwoods perfect for narrow hedges, as well as use as door framing and yard border trees.
