Faulkner Boxwood Growing and Maintenance Tips

Boxwoods can tolerate full sun to full shade, dry to drought conditions, and a range of soil types. They can be pruned any time of the year and used for topiary, hedging, and stand-alone specimens. Young plants benefit from winter protection (burlap wrap) in an exposed location.
