Buxus microphylla var. japonica 'Winter Gem'

Winter Gem Boxwood

‘Winter Gem’ is a round-shaped cultivar that is relatively vigorous. It tolerates a wide range of sites and uses. New foliage emerges a lime-green color and transitions to a deep, glossy green. It has a tendency to bronze when exposed to direct winter sun but the bronzing will quickly disappear in spring as temperatures rise and as new growth emerges. ‘Winter Gem’ is very similar to the cultivars ‘Wintergreen’ or ‘Faulkner’.   Deer resistant.
