NewGen Freedom® is a relatively vigorous, rounded cultivar that is slightly taller than wide. It has beautiful glossy medium green foliage. Its habit is more uniform and tighter than ‘Wintergreen’ or ‘Winter Gem’ thus making it an excellent choice for many formal and residential landscapes. Deer resistant!

It was selected due to its high tolerance of boxwood blight and resistance to boxwood leafminer. Its vigor helps it create an attractive plant quicker than many cultivars but it also makes annual pruning a must. With annual pruning, this plant makes a fabulous specimen.
