Boxwood Green Velvet Hedge
Compact, evergreen shrub
Adding year-round color and a formal look to the landscape is easy with boxwoods. Their glossy, evergreen foliage and tidy habit can really dress up a landscape. Green Velvet Boxwood is one of our favorites for creating low-growing hedges and privacy screens as well as foundation plantings. Growing just 3-4 ft. tall with a similar spread, Green Velvet has a compact habit. With a little pruning, you can create a formal look. Because deer and rabbits avoid nibbling on them, they tend to remain tidy and good looking. Green Velvet prefers slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soils and grows best when planted in full sun to partial shade. Zones 5-8.
