We talk a lot about "winter interest" ? let's talk now about spring, summer, autumn AND winter interest, because that's what you get when you plant 'Winter Gem'. Let's start in the spring, when lime-green new growth explodes in a burst of chartreuse on stunning yellow young stems. This vigorous grower quickly becomes blanketed with fresh green, delightfully shiny foliage for the warm summer months. Late summer brings deep green, glossy, sun tolerant leaves that will delight you as they transition into autumn with their light golden bronzing to mark the descending temperatures. 'Winter Gem' is one of the easiest of the Boxwoods to grow and as easy to prune as the rest. In fact, a couple of light trims in season will encourage a neat compact form that will serve it well, whether it is being used as a specimen or it is grouped in sun or partial shade to produce a hedge or border planting.
