Why plant Green Velvet Boxwood?

Simple but sophisticated. Green Velvet Boxwood instantly gives an ordinary garden an understated elegance. Its dense habit and neat, rounded form bring structure to borders. Its glossy, evergreen foliage makes the garden seem inviting, even in winter. Planted in rows—whether in straight lines or sweeping curves—Green Velvet delineates space in the landscape and gives flower beds a tidy frame. In fact, it’s practically impossible to create a proper formal garden without this crucial finishing touch! Give your landscape strong lines all year long with the go-to plant for classic American formal garden style: Green Velvet Boxwood.

A trip to Europe may make you fall in love with the symmetry and order of formal English, French, German, or Italian gardens. These gardens nearly always make use of English Boxwood hedges to define spaces and create an evergreen framework. However, recreating this look in the U.S. can be difficult with English Boxwood, because it isn’t hardy in colder parts of the country. Green Velvet to the rescue! This hybrid, crossed with the cold-hardy Korean Boxwood and released in the 1970s, gives a similar effect, but it can handle winter lows to -20ºF. It’s the most popular Boxwood sold in the U.S.

How to use Green Velvet Boxwood in the landscape?

Green Velvet Boxwood naturally assumes a dense globe shape, but you can shear it to produce an even more polished appearance if you like. A light trim once or twice a year will keep it looking picture-perfect.

How To Plant Green Velvet Boxwood

Good drainage is essential when growing Green Velvet Boxwood. It will tolerate many types of soil and will even grow in clay, but the soil must drain well or the plant may fall prey to root rot diseases. This is a shallow-rooting plant, so mulch well to keep the root zone cool and moist (but not wet). Green Velvet grows splendidly in both sun and in a quite a bit of shade. The foliage does have a tendency to turn bronzy orange when exposed to icy winter winds, however, so give the plant a sheltered site if winters are severe in your area. Deer rarely browse boxwoods, we are happy to report.

How To Water

After you have planted your Green Velvet Boxwood, you will want to water deeply and twice weekly. Once your boxwood has become established, it will be rather drought tolerant.

How To Fertilize

You should feed your Green Velvet Boxwood about 3-4 times in a year. Feeding should take place in the spring and again in the mid-summer. We recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food.

How To Prune

Pruning this fella isn't a hard task, you will really only need to prune for shape and look! This should happen in the late fall, winter, or around early spring. It's up to you!
