Boxwood just keeps getting better, though it's going to be very, very hard to top Sprinter™! This improved selection of the popular 'Winter Gem' wows with quicker growth, better cold-hardiness, and a more dense, full, upright habit. It's the perfect landscape accent for garden or container!
This little evergreen is ideal for sun or part shade, rapidly reaching its mature size of just 2 to 4 feet high and wide. The foliage is glossy and small, very abundant on well-branched plants. No waiting around for Sprinter™ to fill out and reach maturity; as its name suggests, it races to the finish line and then rests on its laurels!
Use Sprinter™ along the driveway, as a foundation accent, in the border, or in a large planting along a path. It remains neat, needs no trimming, and is fuss-free. One of the best new plants for the garden! Zones 5-8.
