There are many varieties and hybrids suitable for any garden in North America. At ACME Nursery and Garden Centre, we control all aspects of our boxwood production program. In propagation and growing on we keep our plants free of pests and diseases at every stage. For our local markets, we recommend Green Velvet and Green mountain, these varieties are popular with our local landscapers while Buxus sempervirens are popular on Vancouver Island.
Boxwood is a versatile long-lived landscape plant from the classical royal European gardens to modern border plants and is increasingly used as sculptured accent plants in North American gardens.
In the landscape, boxwood is hardy and practically free of common pest, diseases and requires minimum maintenance.
During the summer an occasional deep watering will be sufficient and as such it is a suitable plant for xeriscaping.
