green mountain boxwood?

hvaldez(7)March 26, 2009

Is Green Mountain Boxwood slow growing or fast growing? I read that this boxwood can take up to 10 years just to get 3 ft tall. Is this correct?

ALL boxwood is slow growing - some are just not quite as slow as others :-) 'Green Mountain' has a moderate growth rate for a boxwood but how long it will take to reach 3' depends on how big it is when planted and the growing conditions. I'd not expect to see much more than about 5" annually once fully established, if that.
