Fastigiata Boxwood Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Prune as needed in late winter to maintain density and desired form. If a tight conical form is desired, initial training will be required.  Once this form is developed, the plant will only need selective annual prunings.  Little or no pruning will yield a more broad, rounded conical habit.  Some shade preferred but not required.
