NewGen Independence® Boxwood
Classic boxwood beauty with good overall insect and disease resistance. Deer resistant! Deep green boxwood holds its rich color all winter. Strong branching structure withstands most snow loads. Use in formal designs where a medium-sized plant is desired and as substitute for English Boxwood in foundation plantings.
Prune lightly in late winter to early spring to maintain uniform shape. If fall frosts burn new growth, clip off in early winter. Thinning is not necessary. Space plants to ensure good air movement and apply a light layer of mulch annually.
All boxwood cultivars show some level of susceptibility to boxwood blight under extreme circumstances.

'Standing Ovation' keeps a tight, upright habit throughout the season. The sturdy, spiky stems start out bluish-green and mature in the fall with a brilliant display of oranges, reds, yellows, and purplish-browns.
Foliage emerges yellow with orange centers, transitions to solid yellow-green in summer, and then gets some orange color again in fall. Pink blossoms on slender stalks rise above the foliage in late spring. Gorgeous!
Easy to grow small tree which simply can't be matched for year-round beauty. In spring, the handsome leaves emerge, each sporting dramatically deep veins that make the plant stand out in the landscape. As the season progresses, the leaves grow larger and develop a long, twisting tip. Come August, when everything else is winding down, Temple of Bloom seven-son flower is just coming into its own, as it becomes covered in big clusters of fragrant white flowers that hummingbirds and other pollinators flock to. They last for weeks before gracefully falling to the ground to reveal vivid red, fan-like bracts, which make it look like the plant is blooming again in a completely different color. As winter comes and the leaves drop, the plant's elegant frame is revealed, along with amazing light tan peeling bark.
