Buxus microphylla japonica ‘Green Beauty’  full sun  partial shade  shade lover
Littleleaf Boxwood

Hallmarked by a well groomed verdure, the low growing ‘Green Beauty’ is second-to-none for hedging or edging, accenting the rock garden or making an architectural statement just about anywhere. Polished, small rounded leaves maintain a crisp, dark green look all year long while cloaking the upright, yet compact semidwarf form.

This versatile evergreen can handle hot and cold weather and makes a plucky counterpoint amid Westringia ‘Smokey’ or Teucrium fruticans (Select Form).

Size: 4' 0"–6' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Buxus sempervirens ‘Blauer Heinz’  full sun  partial shade

Applauded as one of the speciesí premier forms, this good-looking chance mutation of Buxus sempervirens ‘Suffruticosa’ was discovered by its namesake in Germanyís Herrenhausen Royal Garden in the late 1980s. Hardier than other sempervirens, the distinctive dwarf habit assumes a rounded, strictly upright and compact shape with densely set small shiny evergreen leaves, sporting unique frosted blue-green hues. A dapper first-class choice for low borders, diminutive hedges, rock work and pots, ‘Blauer Heinz’ favors adequately moist, well-drained soil and requires little pruning or maintenance.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Buxus sempervirens ‘Graham Blandy’  full sun  partial shade  new plant

Introduced in 1949 by the University of Virginia’s Blandy Experimental Farm, this aristocratic evergreen Boxwood struts a suave, strongly upright narrow silhouette.

A first-class choice for any garden, especially where space is limited, ‘Graham Blandy’s impeccable columnar habit can be employed as a specimen, or as a sentinel to denote a threshold, or it can be staged throughout a stylized meadow.

Size: 6' 0"–9' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Buxus sempervirens ‘Vadar Valley’  full sun  partial shade  shade lover

This handsome Boxwood is distinguished by a lustrous mass of tiny dark green leathery leaves, maintaining superb winter color then transmuting a pronounced bluish cast in spring, while dressing a hardy, broad spreading habit. ‘Vadar Valley’ thrives with sun or shade, stays fairly short and rounded, grows at a moderate pace, and is the perfect choice for foundation plantings, low hedges or grouped statements, anywhere its emerald hues can shine.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Buxus sinica var. insularis  full sun  partial shade
Korean Boxwood
Buxus sinica var. insularis

With a tailored demeanor clipped or not, this undemanding Boxwood is second-to-none for hedging, edging, accenting the rockery or sculpting a topiary or bonsai specimen. Young downy branches and lustrous, small elliptical leaves in crisp dark greens define the dwarf rounded form that grows slowly and a little less densely.

A reliably cold tolerant evergreen, it can be planted as a low and refined verdant border, allowing more rambunctious plants to exuberantly spill over.

Size: 2' 0" high x 20" wide; hardy to zone 4.
