A most attractive small boxwood, slow growing to 3 ft or so with narrow curled leaves, just as the name would imply, providing wonderful texture for the garden. Evergreen with leaves tinting only faintly to that dead meat look of winter boxwood (ok, so we could have found a better descriptor). This, however, is offset by the typical male cat fragrance given off by most boxwoods....hummmm. Frost hardy to below 0F, into USDA zone 6. And all this can be yours brightening that somewhat shaded spot with a bit of summer water.

Espaliered or as a dense 3' x 4' mound, the twisted branches of yellow-green foliage of this uncommon boxwood are eye-catching. PSh/Med
