Boxwood Green Beauty, Buxus microphylla 'japonica', can be easily transformed to fit just about any landscape. Without pruning it can grow upright to 6' and will remain somewhat compact in habit. With pruning or sheering mass plantings can be shaped into tidy individual shrubs or formed into a solid formal hedge. Its dense structure and dark green, glossy foliage make for a handsome privacy screen or splendid backdrop behind lower growing perennials. Plant a Boxwood Green Beauty hedge along a walkway or drive for an inviting presence. Be sure to leave the bottom of the shrub slightly larger for ample sun exposure and even foliage.

How will my order be shipped?

Your order will be shipped either FedEx Ground or USPS Priority Mail, depending on the size of the order. Once shipped, your order will arrive in 2-5 business days.

How much does shipping cost?

All orders over $69 ship free. Orders under $69 ship for a flat rate of $11.99.

Do you guarantee your plants?

Yes. If, in the rare case your plants are damaged upon arrival, just contact us within 7 days and a full refund or exchange will be issued for those plants.

Will this plant grow where I live?

The hardiness zones that each plant will grow in are listed in the product description. Please make sure that the plants are rated for the zone you live in. If you don't know what zone you are in, check out our zone map to find out.

If I order now, can I delay shipping for sometime in the future?

Sure. After placing your order, just send us an email with your order number and the date you would like your order delivered.

Do you ship this time of year?

Yes. Our plants are very well established and shipped with the container and soil intact. This allows us to ship the plants year round without compromising the health of the plants. In cases of extreme weather, we may choose to delay shipment for a short period in order to protect your order from the harsh conditions. If this happens, you will be notified immediately with the expected shipping date.

Do you have a catalog?

No. In an effort to reduce the amount of paper we use, we have decided to make our catalog available exclusively online.

All of our plants are container grown and shipped with the soil and roots fully intact. We DO NOT ship your plants bareroot. Being shipped as a containered plant greatly reduces the risk of the plant not surving the transit to your home. We guarantee that you will receive a healthy plant that is ready to thrive! We offer various different sizes of potted plants. The size available for each variety is indicated in the plant title above.

3.5" Pot - 3.5" wide by 3.5" tall
