Unraveled Weeping Boxwood

Buxus sempervirens 'Unraveled'

This unique, arching, evergreen shrub with exceptional texture drapes beautifully in natural form or creates an intriguing weeping form if trained upright. The shiny dark green foliage maintains good winter color. An outstanding four seasons specimen for an entryway, or plant en masse to cascade down a hillside or over a wall.
