Golden Dream Boxwood

Buxus microphylla ‘Peergold’ GOLDEN DREAM offers gardeners and landscapers an evergreen shrub with vivid golden-yellow foliage – ideal for both formal and informal landscape designs alike. This mounded variety stands out in formal designs while its dense growth habit and round form also make it popularly selected as hedge plants or specimen plants in gardens or even as part of an ornamental railroad system.

Golden dream boxwood varieties, like other varieties of boxwoods, are naturally resistant to pests and diseases; however, certain problems, including boxwood blight (Cylindrocladium pseudonaviculatum and Volutella buxi), can arise. To minimize risks and manage issues related to these issues, proper planting, maintenance, and cultural practices must be employed to protect against them.

This cultivar excels in many conditions, from partial to full sun to drought conditions. Its low water needs help it withstand drought conditions; however, excessive overwatering could cause root rot or other serious issues. Furthermore, for optimal health this plant needs adequate drainage and fertility; consider adding organic matter such as compost to the soil to improve structure and facilitate nutrient uptake.

This variety’s slow growth rate and compact nature make it ideal for use in smaller landscapes or spaces, where its slow pace of expansion provides it a suitable companion. It pairs beautifully with flowering annuals, perennials, grasses and ground covers as a background or groundcover, creating vibrant and attractive compositions in landscape designs. Furthermore, its round form makes an appealing accent within rock gardens or alpine environments.

Golden dream plants require only minimal care and maintenance to thrive, though regular pruning will be necessary in order to maintain its shape and size. Pruning should take place either in late winter or early spring before new growth starts – this will encourage denser foliage development while decreasing overgrowth risk. It is also recommended to remove dead or damaged stems as soon as they appear throughout the year.

Add golden dream boxwood to your landscape as a hedge, foundation planting or mixed border and bed plants for added visual interest and character. Its vibrant foliage offers an eye-catching contrast against darker green plants while pairing well with colorful flowers or shrubs to further their coloration. Furthermore, golden dream boxwood makes an excellent candidate for topiary design as its pruning needs can easily be managed and it can be shaped into various forms with ease.

Golden Dream Boxwood can make an excellent addition to outdoor container gardening as either a filler or “thriller,” making a striking display when planted as part of a three-tier arrangement. Ideal for urban and small space gardens, golden Dream Boxwood makes an attractive sight in front of doors or patios and even entryways to welcome guests in style. Due to its slow growth rate and small size, golden Dream Boxwood also makes it suitable for use as part of garden railroads – the Paul Busse Garden Railroad at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens features golden Dream Boxwood growing miniature trees all along its trackway – see golden Dream growing miniature trees in Fairytale Land as part of this railway!
