Green Gem is a slow growing broadleaf evergreen with a compact rounded form well-suited for creating very low hedges. The leaves, smaller and less round than Green Velvet's, retain their color well through the winter. The best time to shear is in late June after the new growth has hardened off, but trimming at other times is alright, too. Has a myriad of uses such as border edging, topiary, container planting, and rock/alpine gardens.

Note:  All boxwoods from Chalet are final sale. Boxwoods are non-refundable due to risk of spreading pathogens.
