Green Velvet Boxwood



Compact�Evergreen Combines Color and Durability�

Full-Bodied Habit Shapes Easily into Any Form

When you combine the best of West with the best of the East, you get a boxwood with exceptional green color, durability and magnificent lush, dense habit receptive to any time of shaping. That result is 'Green Velvet', an exceptional hybrid. Extremely versatile, it thrives as foundation, border, low hedge, specimen, accent, container or landscape attraction.

From its English ancestry, 'Green Velvet' gets its year-round color, keeping its hue throughout the toughest of winters. For Korea, it gets its remarkable hardiness and�versatile, compact habit.

Clusters of pale green to cream flowers offer fragrance from their position�nestled among the small, oval leaves that add a bronze tinge in late winter. The shrub, which prefers full sun or partial shade, grows less 1 foot per year and repels deer and other wildlife.

Adapting to numerous types of soils that are not usually wet, 'Green Velvet'�shapes beautifully and tolerates various climates.

Developed in Ontario, 'Green Velvet' is another in a proud line of outstanding Boxwood, a staple of great gardens in America and Europe.
