Buxus NewGen Freedom®

NewGen Freedom® is a relatively vigorous, rounded cultivar that is slightly taller than wide. It has beautiful glossy medium green foliage. Its habit is more uniform and tighter than 'Wintergreen' or 'Winter Gem' thus making it an excellent choice for many formal and residential landscapes. Deer Resistant.

Fast growth rate: 3"-6" per year

NewGen Freedom® is an excellent boxwood. It was selected due to its high tolerance of Boxwood Blight and resistance to Boxwood Leafminer. Its vigor helps it create an attractive plant quicker than many cultivars but it also makes annual pruning a must. With annual pruning, this plant makes a fabulous specimen. 

Growing and Maintenance Tips:

NewGen Freedom® should be pruned each year in late winter to early spring. If not pruned, the plant will tend to open up in the center, especially in spring when new foliage is wet and yound. NewGen Freedom® is very resistant to Boxwood Leafminer and very tolerant of Boxwood Blight. It has very few disease or pest issues when planted and cared for properly.
