Green Mountain Boxwood, or Buxus microphylla var. japonica 'Green Mountain', is a classic evergreen known for its broad base, conical form, and dense, deep-green foliage. The Green Mountain Boxwood has both medium foliage and form, with a height of 6 to 7 feet, and a spread of 4 to 5 feet. One of the best features of the Green Mountain is its versatility. It can be pruned into a crisp, formal topiary, or left as a soft, billowing, unsheared evergreen.  

Native to Europe and Asia, the Green Mountain Boxwood is one of the oldest known garden plants. It’s extremely hardy, low-maintenance, and easy-to-grow. Its growing habit is upright and forms a pyramidal shape that can fill out to the ground. It’s deer and critter resistant and provides striking deep-green color all year long, even in the winter. This boxwood is very fragrant and attracts critical pollinators.

Green Mountain Boxwood Care

The Green Mountain Boxwood prefers full or partial sun, and will perform best in moist, well-drained soil. It requires average water and yearly spring feeding with organic fertilizer. You should apply a layer of mulch to your boxwoods to protect their delicate root systems in harsh winter winds that can cause dehydration. 

It is good to watch your Green Mountain for leaf blotches, defoliation, and stem lesions, which are signs of boxwood blight. It is moderately susceptible to boxwood blight. 

Green Mountain Boxwood Spacing

The Green Mountain Boxwood is great for hedges and privacy screens as well as a single specimen accent. You may have spotted the Green Mountain Boxwood pruned into an attractive spiral shape or other style of topiary. They work as barriers and borders and look beautiful planted en masse. They should be spaced 1 and a ½ to 2 feet apart for a tight hedge. For a more natural look, plant them 3 and a ½ to 4 feet apart.

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.
