Green Beauty Boxwood. One of the more compact growers of the Asian boxwoods, this selection holds its winter color better than any other and this plant takes summer heat better than most too. It has also been found to be the most resistant to the new disease of boxwood, Boxwood Blight. It will eventually reach 4-6' but can be easily kept to a 24' as a clipped hedge or border. It makes a great container plant also. In boxwood evaluation trials, this plant has come out on top.
