Yellowing of boxwood foliage could be attributed to different factors, soil fertility (fertilization), water management, frost damage, and the most serious is a fungal disease called "boxwood blight".

It is impossible for us to diagnose the problem without photos and more information on the growing conditions and maintenance practices. There is no magic pill, treatment depends on accurate diagnosis.

We suggest that you contact the local Master Gardens through the county/university extension service and first rule out boxwood blight.
