Buxus microphylla 'Sprinter'
This is an improved, fast-growing form of 'Winter Gem'. Its glossy evergreen foliage is attractive year-round, and it has excellent hardiness. This variety's more upright habit makes it great for hedging. Faster growth means it will fill in more quickly than other varieties. Use it for edging or a low hedge in formal gardens.

Many perennials, deciduous shrubs and bonsai plants will have a ‘winter look’ that differs from how they look when actively growing. Colder temperatures and short days alter the appearance of these plants as they go thru seasonal changes. Some plants require this reboot to bloom and/or perform at their best during the growing season. Plants may remain semi-dormant until early spring. Rest assured that these cosmetic changes do not adversely affect the health of your plant.
