Winter Gem Boxwood

Winter Gem Boxwood is an evergreen shrub with small green leaves.  The leaves of this evergreen shrub are some-what glossy in nature.  Winter Gem Boxwood looks great as a stand alone shrub or it can be installed as a hedge.  Relatively low maintenance, but it does require occasional watering during hot and dry periods.  If left natural, Winter Gem Boxwood looks great.  Pruning works best when limited to maintaining the natural globe form of the plant.
