The Highlander Boxwood is probably the fastest growing English boxwood available, reaching 30 inches a year exceptionally, and growing 24 inches a year under ordinary circumstances. It makes taller hedges possible within a few years, normally reaching 5 feet tall and 3 feet wide within 5 years. It is also ideal for upright shapes, like columns, square or round cones, and spirals. Left unclipped it makes an attractive upright evergreen for accents in any bed. It has extremely dark-green leaves, which hold their color all year round, without any significant browning or bronzing.
