Boxwood, Green Mountain (Pyramidal)
Description: Green Mountain, Buxus 'Green Mountain', is an upright, evergreen shrub with an unusual pyramidal growth habit. Small, dark green leaves seem to hold good green color much well than most boxwood through the winter months. It requires cool, moist soil conditions, and it maintains its shape with very little pruning. Fertilization is recommended in the spring and soil should be kept moist, but not wet, especially during the growing season. Full sun produces best growth for Green Mountain, but it can tolerate partial shade. It flowers in spring, but it is grown for its handsome foliage. Use as hedging or topiary, or in a border. Looks great in a container as well! Green Mountain has good cold hardiness and is fast growing boxwood when young.
