Green Velvet Boxwood (Buxus 'Green Velvet)
Green Velvet Boxwood: The Buxus 'Green Velvet' is a North American native species originating in Canada. It's an evergreen that performs well in a wide range of temperature zones--USDA plant hardiness zones four through nine. It's low-growing and rarely grows above five feet. This low-growth habit makes it perfect for many uses in your landscape design.
It is also a species with a forgiving nature. It's deer-resistant, rabbit-resistant, and disease-resistant. It loves partial shade to partial sunshine and fertile, moist soil. While it likes the water, it does not like wet feet, so good drainage is a must. Once you establish those ideal growing conditions, the Green Velvet boxwood is a low-care species.
