NewGen Independence® was chosen for the NewGen brand based on very high tolerance to boxwood blight as well as outstanding performance in boxwood leafminer trials. It has habit similar to Buxus microphylla ‘Green Beauty’ but has much better Boxwood Leafminer resistance and the leaves are slightly more elongated. NewGen Independence is a very deep green, medium sized cultivar that holds excellent color throughout the winter. It has a rounded habit that is nearly as tall as wide. NewGen Independence can be used in formal plantings where a medium sized round plant is desired. Branching structure is very strong allowing it to withstand most moderate to heavy snow loads. Deer resistant. Great boxwood for formal and classic boxwood look. Reaches 3’H x 3’ W in 15 years and 4.5’ H x 4.5’ W in 25 years. 

This plant received an Award of Merit from the judges in the New Varieties Showcase at the 2021 Farwest Show.
