Green Mountain is more upright and
can be sheared into a pyramidal form. The Green Mountain, Buxus 'Green Mountain', has small, dark green leaves that hold good green color much better than most boxwoods through the winter months. It likes cool, moist soil conditions, and will maintain its shape with very little pruning. Fertilization is recommended in the spring and soil should be kept moist, but not wet. Full sun produces best great growth for the Green Mountain boxwood, but it can tolerate partial shade. It flowers in spring, but it is grown for its handsome foliage. Use as hedging or topiary, or in a border. The Green Mountain boxwood has good cold hardiness and is a fast growing boxwood when young.
