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.

Where to Use Green Velvet Boxwood in Your Gardens


Buxus Green Velvet is a petite shrub that can add gorgeous year-round color to even the most compact spaces. TN Nursery customers order this to use in a variety of ways. Here are a few:


  •      In pots or containers: This small shrub is stunning when you let it flank your walkway or front door.
  •      Formal gardens: The species has a classic look, and you can shape it into a more structured shape.
  •      Foundation planting: Consider this shrub for any partially shaded parts around your home's foundation. Because it's so petite, you won't need to worry about it covering most windows.
  •      Border garden: This works beautifully in the middle to back of a garden border.
  •      A better definition of garden spaces: Plant a short hedge to define your landscape better.
  •      Shade garden: It's perfect for any filtered sunspots within your shade garden.


The Green Velvet Boxwood Is Small in Stature but Large in Style


This shrub is an ever-popular formal garden classic. People adore the small but densely-packed oval leaves. When the rest of your garden goes to "sleep" for the winter, this beauty will continue to provide color to your yard.
