Proven Winners SPRINTER® Boxwood | Buxus microphylla ‘Bulthouse’

(8 customer reviews)


SKU: 1539069682 Category:

Sprinter® Japanese boxwood is an improved, fast-growing form of ‘Winter Gem’. Glossy evergreen foliage is attractive year-round, and holds up well to winter weather. Upright habit is ideally suited for low hedging and landscaping. Hardier than English boxwood, and without the characteristic odor, too. Disease resistant, including to boxwood blight.


Boxwood prefers neutral to alkaline soil; well-drained soils are a must. Benefits greatly from a 1″ layer of mulch. Avoid compacted sites.


Boxwood does not typically require pruning as a matter of course, but if plants are being used for clipped hedging or topiary, do so in late spring or early summer, after the new growth has emerged. Avoid cutting into thick stems.


Hedges; borders; foundation plantings.

Growing Tips

Boxwood is one of the most shade tolerant and deer resistant shrubs. Minimize winter damage by providing late season irrigation if weather is dry, and installing a layer of mulch. This is especially recommended for plants spending winter in containers.
