USDA Hardiness Zones 5-8Height 2-4 Feet TallSpread 2-4 Feet WideFull Shade to Full SunGarden design has been described as the slowest of all visual arts as gardens can take years to reach maturity. Fortunately with plants like Sprinter® boxwood, you can get there quicker. This fast-growing boxwood has an upright habit that will give you a filled-in look in less time than slower-growing boxwoods. It comes from good genes too, as it is an improved form of the ever-popular tough and cold-hardy Winter Gem boxwood.Boxwood creates the perfect foil for colorful plantings of flowering shrubs, perennials, and annuals. No matter whether you plant Sprinter® to create a formal hedge,form the sheared walls of garden rooms, or use it in a more naturalistic setting, you will appreciate its emerald-green leaves that hold their glossy beauty throughout the year, along with its no-fuss demeanor. Deer-resistant and salt-tolerant too!Sprinter Boxwood CareBoxwoods are about as fool-proof as plants come, and Sprinter®, with its Winter Gem parentage, is truly a no-fuss plant. Boxwoods do well in full sun and shady conditions, as long as it is not dark, dense shade. They appreciate moist but not sopping soil, so good drainage is the key (as it is for so many plants). Watering the first season of planting is important, especially when Mother Nature turns off the taps in summer and early fall.Mulch lightly to retain moisture and fertilize annually with a slow-release granular product formulated for broadleaf evergreens. Pruning Sprinter Boxwood is not needed or necessary. However, if you would like to prune, do so in the summer. Trim and cut away dead or sick branches anytime throughout the year to help the appearance of the plant.Sprinter Boxwood SpacingThis is one of the fastest-growing of the cold-hardy boxwoods, reaching 4 feet tall and wide in a few years. If you are planting a hedge of Sprinter® boxwoods, space them 2-3 feet apart so they appear as one continuous plant quicker. This is also a good spacing if you are massing them in a less formal way. If you are using them individually to anchor a bed or create a backdrop, space other woody plants 2.5-3 feet from the trunk. You can fill in with perennials and annuals until the woody plants mature.Sprinter Boxwood Plant FactsUSDA Hardiness Zones: 5-8Flower Color(s): n/aBloom Period: Grown for FoliageFoliage Color(s): GreenLight Exposure: Full Shade to Full SunHeight: 2 - 4 Feet TallSpread: 2 - 4 Feet Feet WideHabit: Rounded CompactWatering: MediumFeatures: Deer Resistant, Interest Year-RoundScientific Name: Buxus microphylla 'Bulthouse'Common Name: Sprinter BoxwoodBrand: Proven Winners ColorChoice | Bushes > Boxwoods Proven Winners BUXSPQT
