Buxus microphylla 'Compacta'

Buxus microphylla 'Compacta' | Deciduous & Evergreen Shrubs

Buxus microphylla 'Compacta'

Price: $25.00

Size: see below

Description

Growth Habit: low, dense mound
USDA Zone: 6-9
Exposure: full sun
Growing Conditions: well-drained, fertile soil
Comments: Very dense, slow growing, eventually reaching 24-30 inches across after many years, but only 5-6 inches high. Leaves are 1/4 inch wide and 1/2 to 3/4 inch long. Great low border plant that will not hide your other shrubbery. Often sold as Buxus m. 'Kingsville', but they are two very different plants. Maybe some of the confusion is that 'Compacta' was originally released by Kingsville Nursery in Maryland. Whatever the source of confusion our dwarf boxwoods are TRUE to name and are described correctly.
