Fred's Upright Japanese Boxwood. This distinctly fastigiate growth habit of this selection of Japanese Boxwood was in the garden of Fred Hooks, Marietta, GA. It may be an established cultivar, but we don't know for sure. If you know what it might be, please let us know. It has the same great attributes of the species, tough, sun or shade, disease resistance and lends itself to shearing. As one can see from the picture, it can get quite tall. Fred is at least 6'5". When grown in full sun, it is much tighter in its growth habit. The last picture is an example of what we ship.
