SCHMIDT BOXWOOD DETAILS
Schmidt Boxwood is not one of the more famous boxwood varieties, but we think it should be. Buxus Sempervirens, evergreen shrubs perform extremely well as a hedge. The growth habit of Buxus Sempervirens is upright and oval, and the growth rate (about 4” per year) makes it easy to maintain while also making it possible to achieve a sizeable hedge in a relatively short amount of time (generally a 10-year-old plant is 5’ tall). An evergreen Buxus Sempervirens has excellent winter color, even when planted in exposed locations in harsh winter climates.
Buxus Sempervirens can be grown in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. It is strongly deer and rabbit resistant. Schmidt Boxwood is hardy to USDA Zone 5-8 and does well in the Midwest, which can be a challenging area for many boxwood hedges.
