We have boxwoods both dwarf and regular. The leaves have a rusty color to them right now. Is this healthy? What should we be doing during the winter months to keep them healthy?

It's normal for boxwood leaves to turn a funny color during the winter months. They'll green up again when the weather warms up. These shrubs require only regular watering during the winter months (one deep soaking about every 7-10 days) to keep them happy and healthy. Best wishes with your landscape!
