Often referred to as Korean Boxwood, this variety is a bit smaller and slower in growth than other boxwoods, making 'Winter Gem' a terrific topiary choice that does well in the ground or in large container planters. Adaptable to sunny or partly sunny gardens, this variety is also a good candidate as a hedge or a screen (privacy or for hiding unsightly parts of the garden). Left to its own devices, 'Winter Gem' will grow to four to six feet tall and about as wide. However, it takes well to pruning and can be shaped into topiaries for a more formal look. Yearly pruning will be required to train then maintain a desired shape. Wait until after the average last spring frost date for your area before pruning in the spring to prevent tender new growth from freezing.
