More Information

Description Add year-round color and dimension to your landscape with Sprinter® Boxwood (Buxus microphylla). This low growing evergreen has shiny green foliage that makes a striking addition to containers and looks impressive flanking entryways. Trying to fill in an area quickly? This improved form of Winter Gem is fast-growing and fills in your landscape more rapidly than slower-growing boxwoods. While no pruning is required to enjoy this lustrous beauty, its dense small leaves recover quickly from pruning, making them ideal candidates for topiary. This boxwood adds stunning structure to any landscape, plus with its hardy nature and added disease and deer resistance, it's perfect for those looking to add some low-maintenance interest into their landscape. Details Botanical name: Buxus microphylla 'Bulthouse'
Patent #: USPP 25,896
Common name:  Boxwood
Zone: 5 - 8
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun), part sun (4-6 hours sun), shade (<4 hours sun)
Height x width: 2-4' x 2-4'
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Year-Round
Uses: Accent, Border, Container gardening, Edging, Foundation planting, Hedge, Small spaces.
How To Grow Soil: Evenly moist, well-drained soil. Boxwood grows well in soils that are slightly acidic to slightly alkaline.
Light: Full sun to part sun. Will grow well in a variety of part shade situations, including open sun-dappled conditions or light shade with several hours of morning sun or early afternoon sun. Plants can grow in close to full shade, but typically are less vigorous and more open with decreased foliage density. When grown in full sun, plant foliage is more likely to scorch, bronze in winter, or suffer from mite attacks.
Water: Evenly moist, average
Spacing: 2-4'
Fertilizing: Roots appreciate a good organic (e.g., bark or compost) mulch (1-2"). Apply a balanced fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10 ratio fertilizer, or slow release fertilizer (such as Osmocote), after the second year of growth by spreading it evenly over the surface of the soil (follow label directions), and watering it in.
Winterizing: Boxwood is best sited in locations sheltered from strong winds, with, if possible, some protection from full winter sun. Foliage may bronze in winter when exposed to half day to full day sun. Winter winds can remove moisture from leaves at a rapid rate, often resulting in dehydration and bronzing. Carefully remove heavy snow accumulations as quickly as practicable to minimize stem/branch damage.
Maintenance & Pruning: Plants are generally tolerant of pruning and shearing. Pruning should never be done prior to the last spring frost date. Pruning too early in spring often promotes tender new growth that may be damaged or killed by a late spring frost. Avoid cultivating around plants because they have shallow roots.

No response.

I ordered. The plant came but was shriveled, with brown leaves. I sent pictures and a description to customer care. That was over a week ago and have not heard from them yet.
BTW I love your email site and all the good garden info. you share. I don’t get why I haven’t gotten a response about the condition of the plant.
