NewGen Freedom® is an excellent boxwood. It was selected due to its high tolerance of Boxwood Blight and resistance to Boxwood Leafminer. Its vigor helps it create an attractive plant quicker than many cultivars but it also makes annual pruning a must. With annual pruning, this plant makes a fabulous specimen. NewGen Freedom® is a relatively vigorous, rounded cultivar that is slightly taller than wide. It has beautiful glossy medium green foliage.
