Why Plant Evergreen Boxwood Shrubs?
Boxwood plants are favored for their appearance and versatility in gardens. Their dense evergreen foliage makes them the perfect choice for borders and hedges, serving both as a visual barrier and also a backdrop for surrounding plants. These shrubs are also often used as specimen plants, creating a focal point of evergreen in your garden.
Regardless of how you use them, boxwoods will lend a sense formality to your garden with their rounded shape and evergreen nature. You can’t go wrong with these plants, as they will continue to provide constant color throughout the year, giving your landscape a visual constant.
Tips for Choosing the Right Variety of Evergreen Boxwood Shrubs
It’s important to understand your planting area before choosing a boxwood plant for your garden. Be sure your year-round climate is suitable for boxwoods, as they tend to perform poorly in extremely hot summers and harsh winters — USDA growing zones 4 through 8 tend to be best for most boxwood cultivars. If your climate is suitable, choose a location for your boxwood in full or partial sun with well-drained soil. If you live in a more northern climate, also be sure that your location will be protected from direct winter winds to avoid leaf bronzing.
After prioritizing these considerations, choose the best option for your application and aesthetics.
How to Care for Evergreen Boxwood Shrubs
Evergreen boxwood shrub care begins with learning how to properly plant an evergreen boxwood shrub. First, be sure to plant in an area with full or partial sun with well-drained soil and protection from winter winds. Once planted, water and fertilize the plant to encourage root growth. You should also mulch around the trunk to help retain moisture.
Once you’ve planted your boxwood, evergreen boxwood shrub care is fairly simple — water them regularly and refresh the mulch each year. If you want to prune your boxwoods to help them retain a certain shape, do so in the late winter or early spring before new growth forms.
