Why plant Green Mountain Pyramidal Boxwood Big?
Sublime. Our Conical Green Mountain Boxwood is the epitome of formal garden elegance. Whether giving structure to a bed of summer flowers or bringing cheerful greenery into the cold winter months, this classic beauty always looks picture-perfect. Conical Green Mountain Boxwood can be used singly in the landscape or in multiples. A solo specimen in a mixed border serves as a pleasing anchor and focal point. A pair of pyramidal Boxwoods is also quite effective when planted on either side of a door, gate, or bench. Some would say you can’t have a proper formal garden without it!
Gardeners in Europe have grown Common (English) Boxwood for hundreds of years. In formal gardens in England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, France, Italy, and elsewhere, this essential element defines boundaries, provides structure, and frames beds and borders. In the U.S., English Boxwood isn’t cold-hardy in many areas. Green Mountain Boxwood—bred in Canada—to the rescue! This selection from Sheridan Nurseries was developed in the 1960s by crossing the English Boxwood with the hardier Korean Boxwood. It naturally assumes a roughly pyramidal form, but our growers have trained each plant from youth to take a strongly defined conical shape.
How to use Green Mountain Pyramidal Boxwood Big in the landscape?
Not confident in your pruning skills? Our Conical Green Mountain Boxwood is easy to shear. Its shape is simple to trace compared to that of Spiral or Poodle Topiaries you might buy, but it still lends a striking formal look to the garden.
Hardiness Zone: 4-8
How To Plant Green Mountain Pyramidal Boxwood Big
Good drainage is essential when growing Green Mountain 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 Mountain 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 Mountain Boxwood you will want to water deeply and twice weekly. Once your boxwood has established it will be rather drought tolerant.
How To Fertilize
You should be feeding your Green Mountain 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. Its up to you!
How Does Shipping Work?
Size AA & AAA (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 5-7 business days.
Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.
We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.
*Big trees, Size A and larger, will take approximately 14 – 28 days to be delivered.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on AA, A, B, C and larger scale. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
