Answer: Boxwood leaves sometimes turn reddish in the winter. It's a natural reaction to the cold weather and the shrubs remain unharmed by this color change. As your plants mature you may continue to notice a change from green to orangy-red during cold weather, or you may find some of the older leaves turning yellow and falling off during the autumn and early winter months. Again, this is a normal, natural occurrance and nothing needs to be done.
