Green Velvet Boxwood – Buxus x ‘Green Velvet’

Regular price $16.99

This classic boxwood’s velvety foliage and low, compact habit lends itself to formal hedges or knot gardens. You can keep it trimmed anyway you like for your miniature garden – and it has a nice trunk on it for that authentic tree look.

A versatile shrub, the Green Velvet Boxwood is a slow-growing form of the common boxwood. It can lend itself to a variety of scales and many forms of miniature gardening. It can be pruned at any time, snip the stem just above a set of leaves to hide the cut and it can also be sheared into a fun topiary shape. Keep its 'tree' look by taking off some of the lower leaves on the trunk. It can also be groomed into a hedge by planting several side by side. 

Indoor Growing - Add light anywhere! You can find grow-bulbs that fit regular lamps at your local hardware store or online.
