Sprinter® Boxwood is a fast-growing, deer-resistant evergreen with dark green, glossy foliage. This variety's more upright habit makes it great for low hedging. It also looks great as a pop of evergreen throughout your landscape. 

Sprinter reaches 2-4 feet tall and wide at maturity in zones 5-9. It can be planted in full shade to full sun but will grow quicker in more sun. 

It prefers moist, well-drained soil. Pruning is not necessary but may be trimmed to shape spring through summer. Fertilize with Proven Winners Control Release Plant Food in spring.

Our shrub 3-pack includes an auger! An auger is the best tool for digging holes for small plants, digging in clay soil, loosening soil, weeding, bulb planting, and more. Hex end prevents slippage & tightly grips drill-head for easy tilling. 

  • 8.5 in long and 1.5 in wide (rod is ½ cm thick) 
  • 3/8" bit fits almost every handheld drill 

Auger Safety

  • Call Miss Dig #881 before using auger
  • Never use auger at high drill speed
  • Use clutch on drill to avoid drill spin or kickback
  • Serious injury may result in misuse of auger

    My first order

    All plants arrived in a timely manner and look beautiful and healthy. My only thoughts are, they were all on the smallest size listed. They are really small.

    Sprinter boxwoods + auger

    The Sprinter boxwoods arrived safely in good condition. We are excited to be able to use the auger for bulb planting later this month.

    Great Supplier

    Ordered Sprinter Boxwoods. These plants look so healthy they don't look real. Perfect specimens! Packed well. Shipped fast. Mine came with an auger which is such a great digging tool.

    Nice looking plant.

    The box was crushed. I thought the plant was damaged, but it looks fine. Very healthy plant.

    Fantastic Experience

    Ordering on the website was very easy, the delivery was faster than I expected due to ordering over the holiday weekend. The boxwoods are beautiful and healthy! They will make a great addition to our new landscape! We will be buying more plants in the future!
