The Japanese Boxwood is a relatively fast-growing shrub (to 12″ per year) that typically matures over time in a loose upright form to 6-8′ tall with a spread to as much as 6′ wide. Glossy rounded leaves to 1″ long are variable in shape (ovate to obovate to elliptic). When grown in sun, leaves will begin to turn orange-red-bronze after first fall frost, but they quickly return to green in spring.
