Answer: It's really difficult to describe a boxwood! It might be easier to take a cutting to a few garden centers and try to match the leaf shape, size and color. Here's the best way I can describe them:
Green gem boxwood (Buxus x 'Green Gem') is a slow-growing dwarf plant that forms a tight ball measuring about 2' x 2'. It has very dark green foliage throughout the year. This small cultivar makes an excellent short, formal hedge when planted closely and requires very little shearing to maintain its shape.
Green mound boxwood (Buxus x ?Green Mound?) is very similar to ?Green Gem?, but has a bit finer-textured leaf and is slightly bigger in stature reaching an ultimate height and width of 3 to 3 1/2 feet.
Green velvet boxwood (Buxus x 'Green Velvet') is also similar to ?Green Gem?, but grows up to 3 to 3 1/2 feet tall and wide.
