Sprinter® Boxwood is very light versatile. It thrives in full sun, partial sun, and shade. Too much shade will cause growth issues.
Fertilization is suggested, especially if soil is poor. Our slow release fertilizer is a great option.
Prune once or twice a year after established to encourage a dense, well branched and rounded plant. Trim to shape and avoid cutting into thick stems. It's suggested to prune in early spring and late summer.
Water regularly, especially after planting prior to establishment. Attempt to keep soil very slightly moist, but not too moist. Boxwoods are known to grow well in drier soils. It's suggested to place 1"-2" of mulch under this plant to help retain a little ground moisture.
