Mont Bruno Boxwood – Buxus sempervirens ‘Mont Bruno’

Regular price $15.99

An indoor or outdoor plant for the miniature garden. Discovered in Quebec, this dwarf boxwood’s tiny, dark green leaves retain their color through winter temperatures. Small leaves perch just right on a tiny trunk that lifts it off the ground to make a “real” miniature garden tree. Hardier than the species.

The Mont Bruno Boxwoods have their "winter blush" right now and look a bit bronze. They will turn back to green if brought indoors - or stay blushed if left outside if your area is colder in winter. 

Fall, 2019 - Plants are smaller than what is shown and very cute. Photos here show the bright green new spring growth. The bright green leaves turn a darker green as they mature.
