    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).

  • History & Lore
    This is a hybrid boxwood cultivar that resulted from the cross of the Asian B. microphylla var koreana with the European B. sempervirens. It is one of the Sheridan Green Series introduced by Sheridan Nurseries of Ontario, Canada. Boxwood is so named because its very hard wood was valued in ancient times for making boxes and small containers.
