Green Mountain Boxwood Fall Planted - October 2021
Here's a closer look (below) at the container with the shrub specs:
'Green Mountain' is a dense, upright, evergreen boxwood that typically grows to 2-3' tall over the first 10 years. This is a slow-growing hybrid shrub that may eventually mature to as much as 5-7' tall.
'Green Mountain' is dense and upright and typically maintained in a pyramidal form. Use in formal settings or as a specimen.
That idea - planting it as a specimen - is what I'm going for with this individual boxwood. Yes, yes, yes...I know....I shouldn't have bought just ONE of these (known garden mistake) but, I wanted to tuck this into a spot in between a few different cultivars of various grasses and some hostas. Below, you can see the spot in the foreground where I placed this boxwood - to the right are the Hakeone Grasses (All Gold), behind and to the right are the new Miscanthus 'Adagio' grasses, to the left are some hostas and the large Red Oak tree (tree swing tree). Behind this planting (along the fence) is the Belgian Fence espalier. In between the Belgian Fence and the grasses is an azalea that I need to remove.
