Franklin’s Gem Korean Boxwood is the perfect dwarf boxwood for colder areas in particular. It has perfect tiny leaves and naturally grows into a neat mound that is always glossy green and healthy, from the heat of summer to the cold of winter. It is perfectly hardy throughout zone 5 and it will even survive colder areas with just a little browning, yet it is also happy to grow even in the heat of Florida or California. Plus, it will grow in sun or moderate shade, meaning you can plant it almost anywhere in your garden where you need an accent plant to contrast with the more irregular growth of your other plants. Use Franklin’s Gem Boxwood in pots and planters – it is small enough to look perfect for many years. Plant a low border or hedge that will need only occasional trimming to look neat. Group them among the larger shrubs in the foundation planting around your home. Wherever you use this plant you will love the fact that it is always, neat, always green and glossy, always healthy, and needs no clipping to stay that way.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring. We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture."
