Buxus sempervirens 'Dee Runk'

Dee Runk Boxwood

Fast to medium growth rate; 3"-6"/year

Additional:

Uses - Tall specimen, allée, tall hedge, medium hedge, foundation plant, holiday foliage, containers. Substitutes - 'Fastigiata', 'John Baldwin'

Dee Runk Boxwood Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Prune as needed in late winter to maintain density and desired form. If a tight conical form is desired, initial training will be required. Once this form is developed, the plant will only need selective annual prunings. Little or no pruning will yield a more broad columnar habit. Some shade preferred but not required.
