You won't want to miss out on adding this boxwood to your landscape; it has a lot to offer! NewGen® Independence is not only more resistant to Leafminers, but it also has a higher resistance to Boxwood Blight.

Use as a substitute for Green Beauty, Suffruticosa, Green Mound, and Green Velvet.

How To Plant NewGen® Independence Boxwood
Good drainage is essential when growing NewGen® Independence Boxwood. It will tolerate many types of soil and will even thrive 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). NewGen® Independence grows splendidly in both sun and in quite a bit of shade. Deer rarely browse boxwoods; we are happy to report.

This fabulous shrub will need regular and deep watering for the first year after you receive your Boxwood. Once this shrub has established, you can diminish your watering schedule down to a good soaking once a week.
