About Common Boxwood 

It has impressive cold-hardiness for a boxwood, down to USDA Zone 5, and also tolerates heat and drought quite well. Common Boxwood has a moderately slow growth rate of 3-6” per year. This makes it easy to maintain but also capable of being grown up to a 3-4’ size over time. It forms a wide oval shape that is easy to manipulate with pruning and shape into a perfect hedge. Common Boxwood is evergreen and maintains a nice, deep green color all year. Sometimes if it is planted in full sun there may be a little bit of winter bronzing, but it is very little compared to a lot of boxwood varieties. Deer and rabbits won’t touch Boxwood. Common Boxwood is a versatile boxwood that can be used in any type of garden style, from traditional to cottage to modern.
