Wintergreen Boxwood Shrubs for Sale Online
Wintergreen Boxwood Shrubs (Buxus microphylla var. koreana 'Wintergreen') are evergreen shrubs beloved for their vivid green color, which endures even in the harshest of winters. The new foliage in early spring is soft and a brilliant light green which creates a two-tone effect against the more mature dark green foliage. Other boxwoods tend to turn bronze in winter but not this jewel of a boxwood. This Korean boxwood cultivar is one of the best-selling and well-known varieties of boxwood. Wintergreen was selected for its cold hardiness and ease of care.
Wintergreen boxwood lends itself to adding a sense of permanence in the landscape, especially during the dormant period when other plants have lost their leaves and left you with nothing but bare branches.
Wintergreen boxwoods can be planted in groups of three or five in the mixed border or planted singly to draw one's eye to a focal point. Once you start to use these, you will find so many uses for them in the landscape.
