Faster Growing Boxwood is a Professional Landscapers Favorite!

The American Boxwood is a large shrub that grows faster than many other Boxwood varieties.  American Boxwood shrubs are used where a thick dense hedge or privacy screen is wanted. It’s also used as a foundation plant, or lush backdrop for smaller shrubs planted in front of it.

American Boxwood shrubs are deer resistant, and easily pruned into any shape. The American Boxwood offers dense, year round coverage in full sun to part shade.  This boxwood also has a slightly paler green color. The leaves are not as dark of a green as most others.  This makes a truly unique standout year-round.
