There’s no need to re-create a Colonial garden, unless you want to. Find plants you love and create idea boards for all your projects. It can also be planted in a container as a specimen plant. A hardy, compact boxwood, Wedding Ring has rich glossy green foliage with a lime margin that matures to gold as summer progresses. It holds its color well in summer and winter.

      All respond well to pruning. Use in the garden as foundation plants, clipped hedges, screens, and specimen plants. Water needs vary among varieties, but many take only moderate water once established. P. tobira ‘Wheeler’s Dwarf’ is particularly choice variety for a foreground plant as it only reaches feet tall and feet wide. A few east-coast nurseries specializing in boxwood have already been infected and every plant had to be destroyed, causing at least one of the nurseries to shut its doors. Young plants almost always die once infected whereas it's possible for older plants to survive attacks and eventually re-grow their leaves.
