Baby Gem Boxwood (Buxus microphylla var. japonica 'Gregem')
This fine-textured broadleafed evergreen grows as tall as it is wide, reaching a maintainable size of 3 feet and resembling a little green muffin. It's an exceptionally compact boxwood excellent for use in smaller gardens for borders and focal areas.
Densely branched, the tiny, green foliage is abundant and adds a distinctive note to the landscape, retaining its color particularly well in winter. The moderate rate of growth makes these boxwoods ideal for carefree edging in a wide area of the US.
Other splendid characteristics include deer resistance and tolerance of dry soils once established.
