Great Plant Picks - If you are looking for something flashy in a hedge or just to lighten up a shady place, look no further than this reliable selection of the common boxwood. Variegated boxwood has evergreen leaves with creamy yellow margins and a dark green center. Even though the leaves are small the variegation shows well, providing an elegant display for the garden. Often shaped into hedges and topiaries, it is also attractive in its natural form as a billowy oval mound. Boxwood will grow well in full sun to deep shade in well-drained soil. Once established it is moderately drought tolerant, but appreciates occasional watering. It will tolerate sandy and clay soils with regular summer watering and protection from hot afternoon sun. Boxwood has long been cultivated for its superior performance as a hedge or screen. Heavy shearing can be done in mid to late winter with lighter shaping in late spring to midsummer. Tightly sheared formal hedges need trimming once a month from May to August.
