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.
