The Cranberry Creek Boxwood, or Buxus Cranberry Creek, provides year-round color and requires little care once it is settled. Dark green foliage has a glossy, lustrous finish, and while the leaves are small and rounded, each branch is covered, creating a full look. The foliage may develop a bronzy hue in the winter before returning to bright, vivid green by spring. This shrub has a naturally pyramidal form, but it responds well to pruning, so it can easily fit into the look and feel of your yard. Grow the Cranberry Creek Boxwood as a perennial in zones 4 through 8.

The Cranberry Creek Boxwood prefers full sun but can handle some shade. Plant this leafy shrub in a spot that receives at least six hours of sunlight. The foliage is deer and rabbit resistant, providing dependable color and texture. The Cranberry Creek Boxwood reaches up to five feet tall and features a thick, dense form, making it an excellent foundation planting, or screening to divide a space or create a border around an outdoor entertaining area.

Cranberry Creek Boxwood Care

The Cranberry Creek Boxwood prefers partial to full sun and moist, loamy, well-drained soil. Water weekly after planting to help the shrub acclimate. Established plants demonstrate drought tolerance, but perform best with water during a dry period. This plant is not a heavy feeder, but responds well to a balanced fertilizer in the spring to help it start the growing season strong.

Prune Cranberry Creek Boxwood in the spring to shape the shrub as needed. Follow up pruning with fertilizer to encourage new growth and create a dense appearance. Remove dead or damaged growth at any time. As a hardy evergreen, this plant can handle cold weather, so no special winter care is necessary.

Cranberry Creek Boxwood Spacing

Mature Cranberry Creek Boxwood shrubs reach 4 to 5 feet tall and spread 3 to 4 feet wide. Space shrubs 3 to 4 feet apart when creating a border or continuous planting. Feature one plant in a 12-inch container for more flexible placement options on a deck or patio.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
