Design IdeasThis small rounded boxwood can be treated as a topiary form to create perfect spheres in the garden. Allow to grow into its more natural form for a filler or to cover up the unsightly base of house wall or fence line. Can be grouped in a row for edging, informal hedge or partition in the garden.
Companion PlantsBoxwood is an excellent companion for bold bloomers such as Pink Knock Out Rose, (Rosa x 'Radcon'), Dwarf Purple Rhododendron, (Rhododendron impeditum), Felix Supreme Peony, (Paeonia x 'Felix Supreme') and Sungold St. John's Wort, (Hypericum patulum 'Sungold').
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear periodically to shape.
