Winter Beauty Boxwood Growing and Maintenance Tips
Grows best with cool, moist roots and mid-afternoon shade. They can tolerate full sun to partial shade, dry to drought conditions, and a range of soil types. They can be pruned any time of the year, and can be used for topiary, hedging, and stand-alone specimens. Young plants benefit from winter protection (burlap wrap) in an exposed location. Damage or stem breakage may occur in the winter from ice and snow accumulation.
