Tight/compact habit of deep green evergreen foliage on an upright stately form. A great hardy selection for upright Boxwood.
Plant Type(s): Evergreen, Hedge
Plant Height: 7’ - 8’
Plant Width: 3’ - 4’
Hardy Zones: 4 - 9
Spring/Summer Care: Best if not pruned during growing season.
Autumn/Winter Care: Trim anytime late winter through late spring. Most Buxus can take many different shapes, but 'Arctic Emerlad' has a tendancy to grow upright and form a pyramid-type shape.
Fertilizer Needs: Apply a slow-release fertilizer in mid-summer. Boxwoods can also benefit from magnesium (which can help keep a rich green color). If needed, apply a magnesium fertilizer in late spring.
