NewGen Freedom® is an excellent boxwood. It was selected due to its good resistance to boxwood blight with proper care and resistance to boxwood leafminer. Its vigor helps it create an attractive plant quicker than many cultivars but it also makes yearly or twice-yearly pruning a must. NewGen Freedom®, like many other boxwood cultivars, has a tendency to bronze in winter, especially if in full sun and/or unprotected exposure. Note all boxwood cultivars show some level of susceptibility to boxwood blight under extreme circumstances. We do not recommend replanting boxwood in sites with a history of severe boxwood blight.

Attributes: Beautiful, glossy green foliage adorns this relatively vigorous, rounded boxwood that is slightly taller than wide. The habit of NewGen Freedom® is more uniform and tighter than ‘Wintergreen’ or ‘Winter Gem’ making it an excellent choice for formal and residential landscapes. May bronze in winter. Deer resistant!

Care: NewGen Freedom® should be pruned each year in late winter to early spring. If not pruned, the plant will tend to open up in the center, especially in spring when new foliage is wet and young. NewGen Freedom® is very resistant to boxwood leafminer and shows good resistance to boxwood blight. It has very few disease or pest issues when planted and cared for properly. NewGen Freedom® responds positively to nitrogen applications if foliage bronzing occurs. Space plants to ensure good air movement and apply a light layer of mulch annually.
