How long does it take to grow a box hedge?

How fast does box grow? Once the plant is established, buxus sempervirens will grow about 6-9 inches a year under reasonable growing conditions. In deep shade, very poor soil and very exposed sites, the growth rate is lower.

Besides, how fast do wintergreen boxwoods grow?

Slow-growing Wintergreen Boxwood typically gains only 2-3 inches annually, maturing to heights of about 3 feet with a 4-5 foot spread. If left to grow naturally, this low-growing shrub takes on a toadstool mushroom shape.

How much sun does a boxwood need?

They prefer well-drained soil that is neutral to slightly alkaline. Mulch with an inch or so of chopped leaves to help keep soil cool (but don't heap mulch against the stems). Once established, boxwood shrubs are very drought-tolerant. Most cultivars will grow in full sun to a half day of shade.
