Why plant Winter Gem Boxwood Bundles?

For the more formal landscape beds around your home, there is perhaps no finer Finishing Touch than Winter Gem Korean Boxwood. This luxe evergreen will bring classic beauty to your borders not only in winter, but throughout the year. Plant a matching pair on either side of a bench, gate, arch, or path to create a balanced composition. Shear annually to accentuate that perfect globe shape. You can also plant Winter Gem in rows to make low hedges that will form strong lines in your garden and help you define space. A useful plant and a joy to behold all year-round!

In Europe, English Boxwoods have been used in formal gardens for centuries. Mansions, castles, and simple but meticulously maintained homes in countries such as England, France, Germany, and Italy have made use of these valuable plants. They provide a tidy frame for beds of colorful flowers, bring greenery into the depths of winter, and help to separate different garden “rooms” in the landscape. In the U.S., many want to imitate this timeless garden style, but in the colder parts of the country, English Boxwood isn’t hardy. Winter Gem Korean Boxwood to the rescue! It can tolerate temperatures down to -20ºF when established.

How to use Winter Gem Boxwood Bundles in the landscape?

Winter Gem 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 Winter Gem Boxwood Bundles

Good drainage is essential when growing Winter Gem 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). Winter Gem 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 Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
