Boxwood, Green Velvet Boxwood
Green Velvet Boxwood is a slow growing broadleaf evergreen with a low, mounded habit and lustrous dark green foliage. Bees are attracted by its non-showy fragrant spring flowers. It is tolerant of a wide range of soils and soil pollution but protect from the wind.
This shrub prefers moist, well drained soil in part shade to sun. Green Velvet boxwood responds well to pruning and sheering and can be used in a formal garden setting or a mixed shrub border.
