Boxwood & Boxwood Substitutes Compare
i
Green Mountain
Green Mountain Boxwood (Buxus x ‘Green Mountain’) is an extremely popular boxwood. It has great cold tolerance and is one of the most naturally resistant to Boxwood Blight. It is deer and rabbit resistant and grows well in full sun to shade. It is hardy in USDA Zones 4-9.
i
Schmidt
Schmidt Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens ‘Schmidt’) is a lesser-known boxwood variety but has a desirable tall and narrow growth habit making it great for hedging. It is deer resistant and grows in full sun to partial shade. It is hardy in USDA Zones 5-8.
i
Box Honeysuckle
Box Honeysuckle (Lonicera nitida) is lovely hedge in its own right but also makes a great boxwood substitute for areas with Boxwood Blight. The foliage is evergreen and very similar to boxwood. It is deer resistant, takes full sun to full shade, and grows in USDA Zones 6-9.
i
Hick's Yew
Hicks Yew (Taxus x media ‘Hicksii’) is the best hedge for deep shade locations, although it also thrives in full sun. This is a naturally narrow plant, so it is good for small spaces. It has evergreen needles and bright red fruits. Hicks Yew is hardy to USDA Zones 5-8.
i
Little Simon
Little Simon Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis ‘Little Simon’) is a dwarf selection of Emerald Green that only reaches 3-4’ tall. It is a great boxwood substitute for colder regions and blight-susceptible areas. It grows best in full sun and is hardy in USDA Zones 3-8.
i
Teton Firethorn
Teton Firethorn (Pyracantha ‘Teton’) is an evergreen hedge that boasts billows of white flowers in spring, followed by bright orange fruits that feed birds through winter. Sharp thorns keep deer away. It grows well in full sun to shade and is hardy in USDA Zones 6-9.

How It Works:
Get the instant hedge of your dreams in 5 simple steps
Step 1: Order

Contact us to get a quote or get connected with a distributor. All of our 20+ varieties of hedges are grown on our farm in Canby, Oregon for 5-7 years, then shipped directly to locations all over the country. Our turnaround time is 2 weeks from order placement to delivery, any time of year.

Step 2: Trench

For a standard InstantHedge, dig a trench 12” deep and at least 18” wide to the length desired. For a MiniHedge, dig the trench 7” deep and at least 12” wide. If you are planting a long hedge, a trencher or mini-excavator can save a lot of time. Otherwise digging by hand is perfectly sufficient.
Be sure to check for underground utility lines before you start digging!

Step 3: Place

Your hedges are pre-spaced, so all you need to do is place them end-to-end in your trench. If your hedges were shipped in biodegradable cardboard, you don’t even need to remove the packaging! If you have MiniHedges, simply lift the units from their pots and place end-to-end. Fabric bags can be cut away and cedar boxes can be broken away or saved for other uses.

Step 4: Finish

Backfill around the hedge units and lightly pack. Apply a layer of mulch over the root zone, being careful not to put the mulch onto the trunks of the hedge. If planting in spring, you can also apply a slow-release fertilizer. Set up irrigation if it isn’t already there – drip irrigation works perfectly for hedges.

Step 5: Enjoy!

It really does only take 1 day to install!

What Makes InstantHedge so Incredible
Learn what sets us apart from the rest

The InstantHedge process involves extensive root-pruning of all our field-grown hedges. Each crop is root-pruned five times before harvesting, resulting in a dense, healthy root mass near the base of the hedge. This also means that when the hedges are harvested, no large roots are being cut. This minimizes the stress on the garden hedges at harvest, which means little to no transplant shock. It also enables us to harvest and ship our garden hedging plants at any time of year.

This also means that when the hedges are harvested, no large roots are being cut. This minimizes the stress on the garden hedges at harvest, which means little to no transplant shock.

3 Hedge Sizes

Our hedges are sold in 3 convenient sizes to fit the needs of any landscap project; 5-6’ tall Garden hedges provide instant privacy and screening, 3-4’ tall hedges can be used to create garden rooms and medium-sized borders, and 18” tall boxwood hedges are perfect for knot gardens and low borders. The Garden hedges can easily be maintained at these sizes with regular pruning, or they can be allowed to grow much larger over time. All InstantHedges come in “hedge units”. 18” height hedges are 32” long and 10” thick with 5 plants per unit. 3-4’ and 5-6’ height hedges are 40” long and 16 inches thick with 4 plants per unit.

25+ Hedge Varieties

There is a huge assortment of best hedges in production at our nursery. We have evergreen hedging plants, deciduous hedges, fast-growing hedges, slow-growing hedges, green hedges, blue hedges, purple hedges, flowering hedges, hedges with beautiful fall colors, thorny hedges for security, deer-resistant hedges, bird-friendly hedges, extremely cold-hardy hedges, salt/heat/drought tolerant hedges, hedges for wet areas, and more. Each variety we grow has been carefully chosen, and there are some common garden hedge types that we have elected not to grow due to disease or maintenance issues.
