Green Mountain Boxwood grows in USDA hardiness zones 4 through 9.
This perennial enjoys being planted in full sun with partial afternoon shade. Adequate morning sun exposure will ensure vigorous, densely patterned leaves. Dappled afternoon shade will ensure that leaves are not scorched. If possible, place in a somewhat sheltered location to prevent strong winter winds from bronzing the plant if you live in colder climates.
Water regularly or as needed for optimal color and consistent foliage. In extreme heat, water more often.
This boxwood likes loamy (sandy-clay) soil that drains well. Mulch well to protect its shallow and delicate roots. Fertilize with tree and shrub food, as needed.
