|'Green Beauty' has a compact habit with dark, glossy leaves. Dirr reports that it is not as hardy as 'Winter Gem', which is hardy to -10 degrees (USDA Hardiness Zone 5b). Popular evergreen shrub with rounded leaves and dense growth. Makes an excellent sheared hedge or left unpruned, a classical accent at entrys and corners. Does well as a container plant. It's tolerance of drought, heat and alkaline soil, makes it a better choice than the English boxwood.
