Stock Number: 41550
Availability: In Stock
Family: Buxaceae
Cultural Code: HT CGH what's this?

"Dwarf Boxwood" Very compact wide-spreading stature (a round smooth habit with dense twigy branches); bright green wide oval leathery leaves. Bonsai subject as well as knot garden hedge and rockery star dating back to Dr. Skinner's selection at the Morris Arboretum where a forty year old plant has reached the remarkably daunting height of one and onehalf foot! (Nurseries in the Baltimore area report that this will reach three feet in height and four in width when reaching the ripe old age of forty.) Because of its urge to go hemispherical, this is by far the best candidate for shaping into a ball outline for any garden design strong on orbs. Yes, we know that orbs are in. We are not square.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
