Due to the winter weather, orders from these states will ship in the spring, April to May: CA, CO, IA, ID, KS, ME, MI, MN, MT, ND, NE, NH, NV, OR, SD, UT, VT, WA, WI, WY. And due to the extreme cold and wind which we experienced through the Christmas holidays of December 2022, many Osmanthus varieties won't be shipped until we are assured there is no cold damage. This may be as late as April or May, 2023. We may choose to delay shipping other plants as well.

Winter Gem Asiatic Boxwood. This cultivar of our ubiquitous Japanese Boxwood holds its green color better than the species. When the first frost occurs, its parent will usually turn a sickening bronzy gold, but this selection holds its good green color well throughout the winter. But one prerequisite for this is to have your plants adequately fertilized. It will grow in full sun to part shade. It has the ability to get quite large if left unattended, but it can be easily maintained in the 4-6' range with some judicious pruning only a couple of times a year.
