Buxus x 'Green Velvet' Boxwood develops a darker shade of green at the onset of winter and then turns yellowish brown until spring. Unless the brown leaves are crispy dry, the color you describe just might be normal for your plant. Don't do anything at this point. Just wait to see if it greens up in a few weeks.
