Boxwood & Boxwood Substitutes Compare
i
Green Mountain
Green Mountain Boxwood (Buxus x ‘Green Mountain’) is an extremely popular boxwood. It has great cold tolerance and is one of the most naturally resistant to Boxwood Blight. It is deer and rabbit resistant and grows well in full sun to shade. It is hardy in USDA Zones 4-9.
i
Schmidt
Schmidt Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens ‘Schmidt’) is a lesser-known boxwood variety but has a desirable tall and narrow growth habit making it great for hedging. It is deer resistant and grows in full sun to partial shade. It is hardy in USDA Zones 5-8.
i
Box Honeysuckle
Box Honeysuckle (Lonicera nitida) is lovely hedge in its own right but also makes a great boxwood substitute for areas with Boxwood Blight. The foliage is evergreen and very similar to boxwood. It is deer resistant, takes full sun to full shade, and grows in USDA Zones 6-9.
i
Hick's Yew
Hicks Yew (Taxus x media ‘Hicksii’) is the best hedge for deep shade locations, although it also thrives in full sun. This is a naturally narrow plant, so it is good for small spaces. It has evergreen needles and bright red fruits. Hicks Yew is hardy to USDA Zones 5-8.
i
Little Simon
Little Simon Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis ‘Little Simon’) is a dwarf selection of Emerald Green that only reaches 3-4’ tall. It is a great boxwood substitute for colder regions and blight-susceptible areas. It grows best in full sun and is hardy in USDA Zones 3-8.
i
Teton Firethorn
Teton Firethorn (Pyracantha ‘Teton’) is an evergreen hedge that boasts billows of white flowers in spring, followed by bright orange fruits that feed birds through winter. Sharp thorns keep deer away. It grows well in full sun to shade and is hardy in USDA Zones 6-9.

Using hedges in a commercial space makes financial, practical and aesthetic sense—hedges allow designers  to create distinct spaces  in commercial gardens for everything from entryways, outdoor rooms, paths and bike lanes, parking, entertainment spaces, even quiet green parks and water features: essentially, in commercial gardening, hedges maximize usable space within a property by creating natural, sustainable, green barriers.

Commercial Gardening

Thoughtfully chosen hedges have a myriad of practical uses for Commercial landscaping spaces:

  • Noise and wind buffering
  • Reducing heat load, leading to lower heating and cooling costs
  • Reducing runoff
  • Soil stabilization
  • Creating a ‘green’ environment

Hedge installation is an easy and cost-effective way to add value to the property, as well as creating an aesthetically welcoming space through commercial landscaping—additionally, many hedge varietals thrive in a variety of climates. Hedges in Commercial landscaping are easy to maintain with annual pruning and basic care.

Commercial gardening can be implemented on every sized property, from small, private businesses hoping for a simple, welcoming entryway to large municipalities hoping to increase their accessible public green spaces. Hedging plants are also effective for contemporary landscaping.
