The tidy form of the Neatball™ Boxwood makes this shrub an excellent hedge, while the dark evergreen foliage provides consistent, year-round color. The tiny leaves have a rounded appearance and provide fine texture and an overall full form. The Buxus microphylla 'NSBBL' is tough, hardy, and easy to maintain.

The Neatball™ Boxwood is compact and works well as a low hedge or foundation planting. Define an area without obstructing a view or enjoy color all year, even during the winter. The foliage is deer resistant, so this shrub is a dependable addition to a landscape. Keep the natural form or enjoy a manicured look with routine pruning. Grow the Neatball™ Boxwood in zones 5 through 9.

Neatball™ Boxwood Care

Plant the Neatball™ Boxwood in full to part sun for best performance. It prefers a sandy or loamy soil with high organic content. Newly planted shrubs need regular watering, while established boxwoods only need water during an extended dry spell. Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer annually in the spring.

Prune as needed in early spring. Remove crossed branches or damaged growth to maintain a natural form, or create a topiary and shape the shrub into a specific form.

Neatball™ Boxwood Spacing

Mature Neatball™ Boxwood stands at 2 to 3 feet tall and wide. Space shrubs 2 to 3 feet apart when creating a hedge or continuous planting.

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.
