Get a Classic Garden Vibe with Easy Maintenance

Our ‘Winter Gem’ Boxwood is a versatile and easy-going evergreen. Perfect for creating that classical garden feel. It can also be used to create a clean and contemporary look.

Boxwood ‘Winter Gem’ is a small, evergreen shrub that is reasonably cold-hardy. It is often used in formal plantings–think sweeping lines in a landscape–or as short hedges. You may have seen this boxwood planted as a border along a sidewalk or used to separate a patio or porch from the rest of the yard. 

A slow grower, Winter Boxwood Gem is an excellent choice for smaller spaces where a large shrub would eventually outgrow its spot and its welcome. Winter Gem’s more diminutive stature and slow growth habit mean it will not grow tall and cast shade on the rest of your garden bed. The winter gem boxwood growth rate is less than 1 foot per year.

The Winter Gem Korean Boxwood is attractive all year long. However, new growth in spring is a vibrant light lime color and provides excellent contrast with the older, darker foliage. 

‘Winter Gem’ is great for landscape design. The best use for ‘Winter Gem’ is providing visual separation between patios, decks, or play areas. A well-trimmed short wall of ‘Winter Gem’ can transform an outdoor space from uninspired to organized and purposeful.  

Topiary, anyone? These boxwoods are also great for growing in a container and trimming into a pyramid, cylinder, or ball shape. Shaped boxwoods in containers are often used to flank a doorway or gate.

Dress up a boring backyard and add some year-round class to your property with ‘Winter Gem’.
