Buxus microphylla var japonica 'Green Beauty' (Japanese Boxwood) - Japanese Boxwood is a dense rounded shrub growing only 6 feet tall, easily kept smaller if desired. Green Beauty was selected for its small, lance-shaped leaves which are apple green in summer and turn bronze in winter. Great for shaped hedges in the landscape, edging walks or even as screens. Tolerates heat, humidity, and nematodes better than most boxwoods. Will grow in full sun or shade, with little to moderate water. Also this variety has been reported to do well in rocky soils. Another plus is the deer do not eat it. Very cold hardy, reaching temperatures down to 0-10 F before leaf damage.  The information provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Buxus microphylla var japonica 'Green Beauty'.
