Buxus microphylla 'Morris Midget' Miniature Japanese Boxwood
Buxus microphylla var. japonica 'Morris Dwarf' Korean Boxwood from Quackin Grass Nursery
Printer Friendly Version. Buxus microphylla var. Ours are grown in fertile, moisture retaining soil that drains well sited in open shade with some peeks of sun, somewhat more in winter. Grown in these conditions this wonderful green turtle tends not to acquire the rusty orange winter tone that will develop in more sunny exposed sights. Fertile draining soil on the neutral to acid side of the Ph spectrum.
Gardening Help Search. Best grown in evenly moist, well-drained loams sand-clay mixture in full sun to part shade. Plants thrive in part shade locations, including open sun-dappled conditions or light shade with several hours of morning sun or early afternoon sun. Plants can grow in close to full shade, but typically are less vigorous and more open with decreased foliage density. When grown in full sun, plant foliage is more likely to scorch, bronze in winter or suffer from mite attacks.
To most of us it looks rather ridiculous but it is what it is. There are still plenty of smart men and women not needing a trophy. I am a divorced 59 yr young woman and have not found it difficult to meet people here or find people to do things with. There is plenty to do.
