Boxwood - Newgen Blight Resistant - 3 Gal.

$71.99

Buxus NewGen™ Freedom® NEW

NewGen Freedom is a relatively vigorous, rounded cultivar that is slightly taller than wide. It has beautiful glossy medium green foliage. Its habit is more uniform and tighter than Wintergreen or Winter Gem thus making it an excellent choice for many formal and residential landscapes. Deer resistant! It was selected due to its high tolerance of boxwood blight and resistance to boxwood leafminer. Its vigor helps it create an attractive plant quicker than many cultivars but it also makes annual pruning a must. With annual pruning, this plant makes a fabulous specimen.

Zone: 5 - 8

Mature Size: 4 - 5 ft High x 4 - 5 ft Wide

Growing Tips

Prune annually late winter to early spring. If unpruned, NewGen Freedom will tend to open up in the center, especially in spring when new foliage is wet and young. Thinning is not necessary. Few disease or pest issues when planted and cared for properly. Plant in full sun to shade.
