How to Use Green Mountain Boxwood Cone Topiary in the Landscape

Take time when choosing where to place your Green Mountain Cone Topiary. They’ll repay you a hundredfold with their dynamic presentation.

No matter the style of your home, adding one or two near your front door is guaranteed to amp up your curb appeal. Work them into your foundation planting, either grown in the ground or planted in large outdoor containers.

For modern architecture or Tudor-style homes, use one in an offset planting. Center-hall Colonials, or Arts and Craft-style homes with a central porch staircase can handle a symmetrical planting of two, flanking either side of your front door.

They’ll draw your eye to entryways throughout your yard. Try them as a crisp pair of sentries on either side of a garden gate.

Create a memorable modern garden feature with a cheeky take on the classic annual bedding planting bed. Use four Green Mountain Boxwood Cone Topiary to anchor the corners of a rectangular bed.

Then, outline the bed either with tried-and-true Baby Gem Boxwood, tightly trimmed into a low hedge. Fill the interior with rows of mounding, fragrant Lavender plants or modern Landscape Shrub Roses.

Or…use this approach to tame a native planting of our Spring Flowering Pollinator Pocket Garden. Adding a formal Boxwood frame makes the free form perennials used in the interior that much more painterly.

Take things to the next level by using Green Mountain Boxwood Cone Topiary in outdoor containers. Tuck colorful vines or groundcovers around the edge.

These beautiful plants can be styled how you like. Let in shine in a traditional Chippendale-style box planter painted white or dark green.

Or…let these classic manicured plants take on a cutting edge look in sleek, metal planters. You can even try a fun spin on contemporary country, by adding them to antique galvanized steel wash tubs, punched with plenty of drainage holes.

Your topiary. Your choice. They will look amazing no matter what.

Tips for Care

We have already put all the hard work and time creating these excellent landscape features before you receive them. All you’ll need to do to maintain its shape is give a simple trimming once-a-year after the first flush of new growth.

Trim wayward leaves at anytime, but please use a light hand once it gets closer to wintertime. You won’t want to encourage growth as the cold winds come.

Plant in either full sun or partial shade. Ensure the planting soil will drain quickly, or use a container to keep the soil drained.

These plants require a regular schedule of watering to achieve their best performance. This is especially true for container-grown plants. Water deeply in late fall to protect the evergreen foliage from winter winds.

Fertilize in early spring using an organic, slow-release formula according to the label directions. Top dress with compost every other year to provide rich soil for your beautiful plants. Mulch over the root system to keep them nice and cool.

These plants give you designer style for very little effort. Enjoy their carefree nature and great looks of our professional-grade plant material.
