Japanese Boxwood Plant


Japanese Boxwood Trees are grown in full sun to partial shade and thrive in zones 5-9. These evergreen shrubs grow up to 6 feet tall and are perfect for hedges or topiaries.

Japanese Boxwood

Japanese Boxwood (Buxus microphylla var. japonica) is a slow-growing evergreen shrub that is prized for its dense, glossy foliage and its ability to be shaped into various forms. It is a popular choice for hedges, topiaries, and foundation plantings.

Japanese Boxwood

Japanese Boxwood is native to Japan and Korea. It is hardy in USDA zones 6-10 and can tolerate a wide range of soil types, but it prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soil. It can be grown in full sun to partial shade, but it performs best in partial shade.

Japanese Boxwood is relatively low-maintenance. It should be watered regularly, especially during the hot summer months. Fertilize it once a year in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. Prune Japanese Boxwood in the late winter or early spring to remove any dead or diseased wood and to shape it as desired.

Japanese Boxwood is a beautiful and versatile shrub that can add elegance and sophistication to any landscape. It is a great choice for both home gardeners and professional landscapers alike.

Here are some additional tips for growing Japanese Boxwood:

  • Water Japanese Boxwood deeply and regularly, especially during hot weather.
  • Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.
  • Mulch around Japanese Boxwood plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Fertilize Japanese Boxwood once a year in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Prune Japanese Boxwood in the late winter or early spring to remove any dead or diseased wood and to shape it as desired.
  • Japanese Boxwood is susceptible to a number of pests and diseases, so it is important to inspect your plants regularly and to take steps to control any problems that arise.

With proper care, Japanese Boxwood plants can thrive for many years to come.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
