Buxus 'Green Gem'

'Green Gem' is a broadleaf evergreen shrub that typically grows in a dense globe to 3-4' tall and as wide. Elliptic to oval, glossy dark green leaves hold their color well in winter. Flowers are inconspicuous.
Best grown in full sun to part shade. Plants will grow well in a variety of part shade situations, including open sun-dappled conditions or light shade with several hours of morning sun or early afternoon sun. Plants are generally tolerant of pruning and shearing.  Pruning too early in spring often promotes tender new growth that may be damaged or killed by a late spring frost.
